I just listened to the webcast of Tom Rogers, TiVo’s CEO, from the Maxim Group Growth Conference. Frankly, there wasn’t really anything new – we heard most of it on the last quarterly conference call.
From the Q&A, Comcast had ‘Comcast TiVo day’ about a week ago, and had about 800 New England region Comcast employees getting revved up for the TiVo roll-out which is imminent.
“Get any song you want” coming soon – any of 3 million songs available on the TiVo, any time. He didn’t say the name, but it sounds like the previously announced Real Networks Rhapsody deal.
He made more comments strongly hinting that DirecTV and TiVo may be getting together again once the Liberty Media purchase of DirecTV finalizes later this year.
Not much really.
