NEW YORK There's word that TiVo and Netflix are working on a partnership agreement that will let customers download movies over the Internet onto TiVo boxes.

According to Newsweek, an announcement is due later this month.

There's been speculation that something is in the works since TiVo bought Strangeberry, a company that specializes in using home network and broadband technologies. In addition, TiVo has developed a product that lets users move programming from their TiVo units to personal computers and D-V-D burners. The product is expected out in the fall.

The partnership would help Netflix reach more customers. Its business lets subscribers to rent unlimited D-V-Ds though mail with no late fees.

TiVo and Netflix representatives couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
