I just stumbled onto a few videos on YouTube that I thought I’d share. It looks like last month one of TiVo’s old marketing partners, Acquirgy, posted an informercial they produced for TiVo several years ago, in three parts. From some of the dates visible on the TVs in the video and the copyright date it looks like this was made in 2005, which fits with the ‘nightlight’ TiVo Series2 being marketed. It was before the Series2DT & Series3 came out in 2006. We’ve really come a long way from this to the TiVo Premiere Elite that’s about to launch. For starters the TiVo Dude has learned to speak during the intervening years.
