Capable Networks Acquires

Capable Networks, which already runs sites such as and, has acquired the leading TiVo user community online, Wow, I didn’t see that coming.

My immediate reaction was “Oh no – are they going to migrate TC to their in-house platform?” Frankly, I find the platform they developed in-house, and use on sites like SlingCommunity and DVRplayground, to be vastly inferior to the vBulletin boards used on TiVoCommunity. And that’s saying a bit, since I have issues with vB too. But I find some re-assurance in their press release:“Capable Networks plans to maintain the current, successful format of TiVoCommunity, even while planning a few specific improvements to the website.” So hopefully they won’t be making any drastic changes.

Thanks to Dave Zatz for the tip via email – and here’s the press release.
