Dave Zatz Orders Domino's Via TiVo
Dave Zatz of Zatz Not Funny took the hit and ordered a pizza from Domino's via the new TiVo HME application. And he kindly captured the experience on video and posted it to YouTube:
I'd still like to see this expanded to cover local places. I checked it out as well, but the two Domino's locations it offered me were pick-up only, I'm outside their delivery area. There used to be one a block and a half from my house, but I noticed just a week ago as I drove by that it was gone. So I guess I won't be trying it out myself.

That aside, the application was fairly simple to use, and I can see this being useful. If it supported places I actually ordered from I think I'd use TiVo-based ordering. I host a regular movie night with friends at my place, and we always order dinner. Right now we do it by passing around take-out menus and I write down what people want, then I call in the order, or sometimes order online from my laptop - if the place supports it. But if people could just put in what they want on the TV screen, we could all see the order, and then place it - that'd really be convenient.

I didn't see a credit card option, can you only order with cash? I have ordered Dominos online before and I found it pretty impressive. They showed me a timeline of where my pizza was like, "Jim is putting your pizza in the oven" and "George is delivering your pizza right now", etc.

Right now it is cash only. I agree a credit card option should be added.
