Are there any employees who want to defend ROGERS? Does anybody in IT at TIVO respect ROGERS? or is he considered a tool?
Did any other TIVO investors read the Edited Transcript of TIVO presentation 23-Jun-15 3:20pm GMT? Rogers comes off very weak to me.... and maybe delusional. Maybe Rogers needs to get out of his office and see what is happening in the world. Who needs a subscription TIVO to access media when ROKU has no monthly fees and is cheap to buy.
managers have been bleeding the company. It is foolish to dream they want to take it private....unless they can drive the price down into the pennies then maybe they would buy it all.
For many years back when the TIVO board was active and before most people gave up on TIVO, there was a daiy chant about all the different companies that were going to buyout TIVO. Google was the most popular but there were many others listed weekly from AAPL to INTL to CSCO. Also other favs were the cable companies. No other company ever even showed the slightest interest in TIVO. With on demand and the cloud TIVOs days are numbered. TIVO has very weak management with no vision. Rogers is a joke in my opinion and I would think that opinion is quite widespread judging by the poor job he has done and in his taking TIVO down to such a low status. Asia has had DVRs for many years and BABA does not need TIVO to offer a DVR.
OLD NEWS. Everybody knows he is an uncle tom. Who is the puppet master? Who is in control and wants the USA so screwed up? WHO?
The future is so exciting, these greed mongers are going to give us the opportunity to invest in 3 new companys so they can then suck dollars from us at 4 times the volume. Life is great.
Everything right. ha ha ha ha ha. You must work for tivos propaganda division. Start with dumping Rogers. 2nd give a dividend to stockholders. third maybe have a 2nd and 3rd and 4th product so its not a one trick pony. In the tech world they are at the bottom of the barrel. You touts must work for hedge funds trying to get out of tivo stock.
15 TO 20 years. Wow. You think the world is going to stand still for 20 years waiting for tivo to get its act together. If you can pry Rogers greedy hands off tivo then maybe it has a few years left.
Worldwide give me a break...Tivo has lost Asia to generic DVRs while they are fooling around in poland. Many many posters have been posting since 2002-2003 that Tivo will be bought out.
Not going to happen. All companys already know Tivo and nobody wants them. Tivo is Rogers last stand so he has a golden parachute. Rogers and his gang treat Tivo as their private company. Tell me what has TIVO EVER done for stockholders. NOTHING!
Its too late. They had their chance and they blew it. Maybe they can hold on for a while as a 2nd rate dvr company but they lost the lead years ago and they have no long term future. Tivos big deal is to buy a polish company? give me a break. If you were a tech guy about the last company you would want to work for would be TIVO. At least they did something with some money besides give Rogers some more free options.
Here in the deep south on that 24 month package they also have small print that says the 2nd 12 month period is at full price...whatever full price is. I would think somewhere over $70 up per month
I think you are right but check the small print as I believe you then have to agree to an additional year at full price. OUCH.
Do you get a large phone bill for using your 4G phone to download a lot of tv all the time. It seems like you phone useage would be a very high cost.
I just post the truth about tivo and rogers. Its not like I have to make up negative things. These negative things are real and happening all the time. If all the benefits go to rogers how does that help you as a tivo stockholder? Is your whole reason for owning tivo to make life easier and better for rogers? Maybe if enough stockholders wake up to what is really happening at tivo a change could come for the better. If you are a stockholder do you really want weak management? I just want tivo to start acting like a real company and not just a personal piggy bank for rogers and his cohorts
I am not sure if this is a real post or a post by a tivo employee. I have never heard of a cable bill for $245 a month and I have never heard before that using a tivo is cheaper than using the generic DVRs from the cable companies.
This post sounds like a PR release from the publicity dept at tivo. The tivo may be a good DVR but did you do any DD on tivo? Do you know that the management is very weak and it is a very stockholder unfriendly company. Have you ever heard anything about other products from tivo besides their DVR? Do you know their basic patent is going to expire in 2017 and then its all over. Did you think Rogers would ever share any of his company's money with the shareholders in the way of a dividend? Have you looked at a chart of the stock since it became public? A very ugly chart indeed. Did you know Rogers is unloading stock in very large numbers. The boss of tivo is SELLING stock not buying! Just a few things to think about.
I was surprised that according to 81 employees of Tivo that Rogers actually got a 47% approval rating according to glassdoor website. That means only 53% of Tivo employees disapprove of Rogers leadership. One comment I liked was: "Okay management, can't say it is great." other comment "great parties" ( I am sure Rogers loves to have great parties at the expense of us stockholders.another employee writes "I have been working at TiVo full-time (More than 8 years)" “Not innovating like they once did " etc etc etc etc. tic tock rogers the clock is ticking!!!
