Tivo Adds Another Cable Partnership

While Tivo patiently waits for Comcast and Cox to make Tivo its primary DVR partner, it has found another friend with Suddenlink. "Suddenlink, the eighth-largest MSO in the U.S. with 1.2 million basic video subs, will offer TiVo Premiere DVRs as well as non-DVR set-tops from TiVo." Great news for Suddenlink customers to get more functionality and easier controls from their settop box and for Tivo to get further into the cable model. Add Suddenlink to the DVR list that includes Direct TV, RCN, as well as other international operators.

At the same time, Tivo continues to fight the patent issues with Dish along with recent suits against Verizon and AT&T. I'm excited to see Tivo grow and only wish that my own cable provider would bring the Tivo technology into their settop box.
