TiVo Having A Good Month

TiVo seems to be all over the news these days with more and more good news regarding its distribution. Earlier this month came word that DirecTv was pushing its TiVo box and now the rollout of TiVo on Charter in the Fort Worth system and full rollout by June 2012. This deal was announced almost one year ago so it is nice to read that it is actually available in market. "Charter-branded TiVo PremiereCharter's TiVo DVR will be $20 per month; during a limited promotion period, subscribers can get additional TiVos for $10 per month for 12 months."

"For TiVo, attracting subscribers through operators including Charter and DirecTV is critical to its future. For the quarter ended Oct. 31, TiVo gained 117,000 net subs, thanks to the rollout of a TiVo-based box by the U.K.'s Virgin Media -- its first net gain in more than four years." These US deals should give TiVo another strong quarter. As a TiVo fan, I look forward to seeing them drive distribution across the other major cable operators.
