    [news=http://img259.imageshack.us/img259/5505/tivo9zf.gif]Add TiVo Inc. to the list of companies trying to wed the Internet to television. The digital recording company will soon allow customers to download TV shows to their set-top boxes via the Internet even before the shows air on TV.

    TiVo has struck a deal with the Independent Film Channel to transmit several of the cable channel's shows through a broadband connection as part of a trial program. Participating customers will begin receiving the shows next week, said TiVo spokesman Elliot Sloane.

    Sloan confirmed that TiVo sent messages to its customers later posted on the technology Web log Engadget.com offering to transmit three IFC shows beginning Aug. 19, before they aired on the cable channel.
