TiVo Subpoenaed By Missouri Over Rebates

The LA Times has a small blurb about TiVo being subpoenaed by the Missouri attorney general over their rebate practices:

Missouri’s attorney general subpoenaed TiVo Inc. in April for information related to the company’s rebate program.

The maker of set-top boxes that let users fast-forward through commercials is cooperating with the probe, the Alviso, Calif., company said in a regulatory filing. Atty. Gen. Jay Nixon is investigating whether the company was involved in unlawful merchandising practices with its rebates.

“We are not aware that we’re doing anything wrong,” said Matt Zinn, TiVo’s general counsel.

An unrelated blurb on the same page reports that Netflix has sold out of the $100 Roku boxes for streaming Netflix’s Watch Now videos, due to stronger than expected demand.
