• TiVo Premiere hands-on~!

    Greetings! Nicholas and Jimin here live from the big TiVo Premiere launch in New York. There was a man guarding the device, which was hidden under a cloak, but when the cloak was lifted, oh dear! The gist: this is a TiVo you’re probably going to want. HD menus (build using Adobe Flash), searching that actually makes sense, a fancy remote control, and other goodness that you… Read More

  • Series 3 TiVo boxes will NOT get the Premiere software

    Sorry, TiVo owners. Your TiVo HD and HD XL boxes will not be getting the swanky new software TiVo announced today according to an official TiVo spokeswomen we just asked. It probably has something to do with the fact that the Premiere hardware is the same as the current generation and therefore current owners would have little reason to upgrade to the new models. This isn’t very… Read More

  • The TiVo Premiere is finally official

    Finally. We finally have new TiVo models. The TiVo HD XL launched a long year and half ago and the UI is even older. But that’s behind us now, the TiVo Premier is here and it’s (nearly) everything we need in a DVR. Everything is different: the hardware, the interface, even the remote. (QWERTY!) Read More

  • The AP leaks the first photo and confirms the TiVo Premiere name

    Well done, AP. Thanks for giving us the very first look at what TiVo has in store for us later tonight. Too bad you had to go plaster your watermark all over it. But from what we can gather, it seems like the interface got an HD makeover while maintain the classic TiVo look and feel. Plus the image description confirms the TiVo Premiere name that leaked back in December. ** HOLD FOR… Read More

  • Be on the lookout for TiVo news later today!

    I don’t want to alarm any of you, but today is TiVo Day! Yes, a little later on today TiVo will unveil something that’s sure to please Matt Burns, if no one else. There have been plenty of rumors as to what the company has up its sleeves, but I’m sworn to secrecy. That, and it’s been several months since they actually told me What’s Up, and I simply do not… Read More

  • Rumor: Upcoming TiVo improvements include UI revamp and full HD support

    <A tipster writes in with knowledge of some of the improvements TiVo may be making to its devices. The most important: a move to full HD menus, improved search, and the phasing out of Series 2 hardware. Because the company stopped making improvements to the current software as of the middle of last year, our source believes that aside from minor add-ons like Blockbuster support the old UI… Read More

  • TiVo schedules a March 2nd NYC event and we'll be there

    We’ve known that TiVo was cooking up something tasty for a bit now. It could be the Premiere that leaked a few weeks back or something entirely different. We really don’t know at this point. But what we do know is that we’ll be at TiVo’s March 2nd event to get a good look at TiVo’s latest creation. Read More

  • TiVo sez Doritos commercial was the biggest hit in the Super Bowl

    Thanks to TiVo, we have a pretty good idea of what the most popular commercials from last night’s Super Bow. Survey says: that Doritos commercial with the little kid telling his mom’s date to keep his hands off his mother (fat chance!) and off his Doritos. America is a peculiar little country, isn’t it, cheese-flavored chips and light beer as far as the eye can see. Read More

  • Where did the TiVo HD go? New model launching soon?

    Let’s say you want to buy a TiVo HD right now from TiVo.com. After all, it’s a great DVR with Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, and local networking streaming support. The only thing is you that can’t. It’s listed as out of stock. The only option available is the 1TB $499 TiVo HD XL. Does this hint that there’s a new TiVo model launching soon? Maybe the TiVo Premiere… Read More

  • Comcast acknowledges 2005 by slowly rolling out remote DVR scheduling

    Do you have a Comcast DVR? I do. I also have a TiVo, which has had remote scheduling since 2005. I can almost schedule recordings remotely to my Comcast DVR. Not yet, but almost – it’s not available in Boston yet, apparently. If you have a Comcast DVR, check out http://www.comcast.net/mydvr/ to see if the service has been switched on in your area.

  • TiVo Premiere leaked by manual mix-up?

    It’s about time that TiVo outs some new hardware and it looks like it might be sooner than later. The TiVo HD and HD XL have been sitting atop the companies mast unchanged for sometime now, while other DVRs like the Moxi keeps the updates rolling. But a little manual mix-up might show what TiVo is prepping to launch. The story goes that Patrick McCarron upgraded to a TiVo HD and… Read More

  • Sad-Eyed TiVo of the Low Subscriber Rate

    And… it’s… outta here. TiVo is down to less than three million subscribers and they sold about 500 DVRs a day last quarter, giving it 8% of the 38 million US DVR market. That’s not much. TVByTheNumbers has the numbers. They’re down 314,000 subscribers to 2.76 million and lost 146,000 last quarter. Rough stuff. Read More

  • TiVo drops the prices of the HD and HD XL DVRs in the spirit of giving

    TiVo has finally dropped the price on the HD and HD XL DVRs. These models have been rocking their initial MSRP for years now, but now they can be had for a little bit less. The 160GB HD model is now $249 and the 1TB model, $499 down from $599. Of course you still have to pay a monthly fee to use these DVRs, but I’m not one to snub a modest price drop. Read More

  • How do you like that, DVRs didn't kill the television business after all

    Here’s a story I first heard on Figure 4 Daily last night while farming for mageweave (no, I’m not lying): not only have DVRs not ruined the TV businesses, as we had been led to believe for so many years, but it turns out that the delayed viewings, and more accurate ratings, have given the networks exactly what they’ve always wanted. That, of course, is the opportunity to… Read More

  • Hands-on: BlockBuster On Demand on TiVo

    TiVo users have known that Blockbuster On Demand was coming to TiVo for a while, but the service just went live. So, does it have the goods to put up a fight against Netflix or Amazon On Demand that have been streaming content on TiVos for months already? Nope, not at all. Read More

  • TiVo's On Demand section down for Blockbuster On Demand update

    Don’t look now, but your Series 2, 3, or HD TiVo is probably getting the Blockbuster On Demand update right now. Actually, go look now because while I couldn’t get a picture to show this accurately, the screen above looks slightly different than other TiVo screens. It’s tad higher resolution and there is just something different about it. Maybe a TiVo GUI refresh is just… Read More

  • Blockbuster On Demand coming to TiVo sometime today

    TiVo users! Rejoice! Soon you’ll have access to Blockbuster On Demand content as if Amazon, Netflix, Walt Disney Studios, and Jaman services weren’t enough. I hear that sometime today, the service will go live on Series 2, 3, HD, and HD XL boxes but so far it isn’t up on either my HD or HD XL units. Not that it matters all that much. I’m not going to use it anyway. Read More

  • Jay Leno really is helping NBC at the 10 p.m. time slot

    I’ve heard good things about The Jay Leno Show recently, which might be why he’s improving NBC’s TiVo stats. Previous seasons NBC saw nearly 70% of its viewers timeshift during the 10 p.m. time slot. Leno has managed to improve that to only 46%, with 20% of those people watching the show at 11 p.m. instead. That number is actually great considering CBS and ABC have been… Read More

  • Hands-on with the BlackBerry TiVo app

    TiVo finally got with the program and released its first BlackBerry app this morning. The good news is that it seems to work as advertised, but let’s just say that it’s a pretty basic app and is just made for scheduling recordings. You can’t remotely control your TiVo or stream any content from it, but this app is a good start. It’s easy to use and gets the job done. Read More

  • The Hurt Keeps Coming: Dish And EchoStar Ordered To Pay TiVo Another $200 Million

    The battle between Dish and TiVo rages on. As reported by Bloomberg, a judge has ruled that Dish and EchoStar must pay TiVo around $200 million for continuing to provide DVR service to its customers after being told to stop because it was violating TiVo’s patents. Dish and EchoStar plan to appeal the ruling. The new ruling brings Dish and EchoStar’s total payments to TiVo to… Read More
