  • he only comments when the stock goes down!

  • don't you ever tire of empty promises from Tivo. Maybe in 2021 second quarter they will do something for stockholders. TIVO=VERY STOCKHOLDER UNFRIENDLY

  • If one does a web search for "TiVo on Xbox One and Fire TV possible after Adobe ousted" they'll find the article on SlashGear's website.

    In that article it goes on to discuss how TIVO has ousted Adobe Flash from its DVRS in favor of Haxe. If one then searches the web for "GitHub TIVO WWWX2014" they'll find a TIVO corporate presentation detailing how they plan on rolling the service out on new CEDs such as Smart-TVs, AMZN Fire, Xbox, etc. in the future.

    This would be game changing - it makes TIVO to video what MSFT Windows is to PCs.

    TIVO service crashes

    by billw12 Jul 10, 2014 11:26 AM

    My service (Colorado) tried to reboot on its own last night and now is hung up in the reboot and a frozen screen. Tried the unplug and replug power and still nothing changes. No customer service phones being answered and no chat being responded except the notice that they are sorry but the call center is unavailable at this time. Yes, I do think this will have an affect on TiVo shares once the "public" realization that people like me cannot see tv without the fix to their system (unless I bypass TiVo and no longer have a dvr). If this continues past today, they have a huge problem on their hands.

  • TIVO service is down today 7/10/2014 and the company has no idea about what is wrong or when it might be fixed. This leaves their customers out on a limb. Perhaps TIVO should be shorted?

    Told ya!! Follow the insiders and sell when they do!

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • tim_tivo Jul 4, 2014 5:51 PM Flag

    And when it finally does move the insiders dump their free shares, killing every rally this PIG has ever had.

    Follow the money. Sell or short when the insiders do, they have an uncanny knack for bailing out at the top.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Supreme Court errs on Aereo decision

    Glenn Garvin: Supreme Court errs on Aereo decision

    Aereo could provide its service so cheaply because it wasn't paying the exorbitant so-called retransmission fees that the broadcast networks charge cable companies to carry their signal. Aereo is not a cable company; it picks up the broadcast signals from the air, via huge banks of tiny antennas at a central location, one antenna assigned to each customer.

    Their signals are then stored on a server and relayed to customers via the Internet - instantly, if they want it; later, if they prefer to time-shift.

    With that kind of booty at stake, the television industry attacked Aereo with a vengeance. And last week, the Supreme Court agreed with the monopolists. Forget all those bothersome "behind-the-scenes technological differences," wrote Justice Stephen Breyer in his majority opinion. If it kinda, sorta looks like a cable company, then we'll treat it like one.

    A dumbfounded Antonin Scalia, in dissent, accused the court's majority of "guilt by resemblance," which he warned will complicate decisions on new technologies for years to come.

    First candidate: those cloud-based data storage services like the mythical iDrop that Justice Sotomayor mentioned. If you store movies, music or anything that's been copyrighted in one of their accounts, by the standards of the Aereo decision, you are witnessing a "performance" every time you access your account, and the copyright holder could charge you for it.

    To be fair, Justice Breyer wrote that cloud-storage services won't be affected by the Aereo decision because, well, he says so. He didn't offer a single shred of reasoning as to the difference. Then again, he didn't offer any reason why Aereo is different than a host of other technologies that help you watch television.

    "I don't think you understood the SCOTUS decision or what was at stake. Aero re-transmits centrally recorded shows not personally recorded shows."

    Umm..sorry... You're wrong. It's you that doesn't understand the SCOTUS decision or how Aereo's business model works. Go back and read it again. This time with an open mind.

    Just saying....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    TiVo records a free OTA Signal and "retransmitts" it to a mobile device.

    Aereo records a free OTA Signal and "retransmitts" it to a mobile device.

    What exactly is the difference between the two? They both retransmitt copyrighted material available for free over public airwaves.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Out of curiosity Tim, do you always add quotes to the words you can't spell? Or is that some inside joke I've missed in your prolific postings?

    On your points...I don't think you understood the SCOTUS decision or what was at stake. Aero re-transmits centrally recorded shows not personally recorded shows. TiVo is allowed to re-transmit recordings but if you pay attention those rights are in conjunction with copyright laws and is not without restrictions. The Tivo has evolved with trends in digital distribution and copyright laws while the Aero was attempting to bypass those laws.

    Keep up the campaign. I'm sure you are profiting handsomely from all those lemmings as the price slowly rises.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • 1. For a fee, Aero let's me record free over the air programming that I can watch anywhere on a computer monitor or mobile device.

    2. For a fee, TiVo let's me record free over the air programming that I can watch anywhere on a computer monitor or mobile device.

    Since SCOTUS went out of their way to claim that this was basically a "copyright" (re-transmission) and not a "harware" (although they left that door open) issue, how is one device illegal and one not?


    PS: The location of the "attena" was not an issue with SCOTUS either. If it was what's the difference between paying Cablevision a fee to record shows and store them in their cloud for me to view later?

    Tick Tock.....

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Germany or France

    by bxtixti May 28, 2014 11:26 AM

    Rogers and his crew as always are so busy figuring out how to get their hands on Tivos money they have missed the boat in both Germany and France. You can google dvr users in those countries and you will find dvr users were over 22% as long ago as 2011. Rogers has diddled long enough. Resign now Rogers before there is nothing left and you leave in shame. This is probably your last venture in your career so leave before you have to leave in disgrace. Save something of your legacy and also give a little something to the stockholders.

    Wait until (lack of) earnings announcement next week and short more.
    It's not rocket science, this pig hasn't ever made a dime and never will.

    Hey, you're preaching to the choir...
    I've been short since $11.48 and have absolutely no plans to cover anytime soon.
    This pig is done next week when (lack of) earnings are released.

    While you clowns were busy whining about me, this POS is tanking hard.
    Just like I told you it would. You clowns will never learn.
    PS: feel free to shoot the messenger, I love the attention!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • why should stockholders just shut up and take it up the a@# from rogers and his gang? Rogers should get out and stop bleeding the company to death. As soon as Rogers is gone we will reap the rewards we should have as tivo will soar with new management. You are either on rogers payroll or you are a good little stockholder that will just do whatever the rogers gang tells you to keep you mouth shut and don't ask about where the money is going? and why can't they share some of the money with the stockholders?

  • maybe we need to fire Rodger Dodger and get a New CEO.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Germany or France

    by bxtixti May 28, 2014 11:26 AM

    UK and Spain are clearly hits, so either Germany or France would be logical and a good addition. I think the biggest thing that can be seen is that they have the formula down in their Virgin launch. On the conference call Tivo talked about the ability to grow the US market of mid tier cable companies the same way. I think that they tossed out a number of about 5 million subs that they thought they could get in the US. The US also pays a little higher fee than they are getting in Europe.

    Years ago Tivo announced numerous deals with cable operators. The problem with those deals was that they really didn't get much traction. Now, I think the difference is that they have technology that works pretty easily (not huge integration timelines and costs) and a marketing formula that works as well. Also, it seems that the cable companies fear the tech companies much more than Tivo. Any deals - Germany, France, or anywhere else make a lot of sense.

  • Not promotion, just real research.

  • With Virgin subscriptions in UK already at 60% it would be good if they announce shortly a deal in Germany or France, two large markets as well, to keep the sub addition momentum going on, otherwise i am afraid we will see sub addition numbers go down in a Q or 2...any thoughts?
