This is equally cool, convenient, and at the same time funny.

ALVISO, Calif. - Digital video recording company TiVo Inc. said Monday it is teaming up with Domino's Pizza Inc. to allow subscribers to order pizza for delivery or pick-up from their TV sets.

"This is the first time in history that the 'on-demand' generation will be able to fully experience couch commerce by ordering pizza directly through their television set," said Rob Weisberg, vice president of precision and print marketing at Domino's.

Weisberg said TV watchers will see an ad for Domino's and will be able to click "I want it" from their TV remote. In about 30 minutes, the pizza will be at the door, he said.

TiVo subscribers will be able to enter their delivery address and select crust type and sauces through the TV, TiVo said.

The company said subscribers can also set up a user-name and pasword on Dominos.com to log in with an account number each time an order is placed. Viewers then pay in cash when the pizza is delivered.

The service begins this week. It is free to all TiVo subscribers, the company said.


Now if only the pizza actually was delivered through the TV.

I really dont see much of a difference between this and ordering Pizza Hut on the internet.I still think its easier to pick up the phone and call it in.Then you got the high school dropout delievery guy calling your for directions anyways.You always tip them with beer.

You can get sort of that at ESPNZone. They have small (probably 5-7") TV screens in the restrooms so you can watch SportsCenter while you go. I think they have bigger ones mounted on the walls for the times when you gotta dos.

If we're talking about the film Idiocracy then i can't agree with it being a stupid movie... also I thought he was a wrestler not a cage fighter... but we could be talkin about different' films here.

Haha, well while i respect your opinion to not like the film, i think it was funny with good satire on the way American Culture is headed if something drastic isn't done within the near future.
