Thomas Hawk has a great wrapup of TiVo's quarterly investor call which includes information on all sorts of TiVo initiatives. It sounds like the Series 3 TiVo won't be coming out until at least this summer and more likely around the holiday shopping season. The lifetime service option is being phased out while the free box in exchange for a higher monthly cost will be phased in. It sounds like the Comcast deal is still moving forward but may be ad supported to some extent. And they continued to downplay the loss of DirecTV.
Not a lot of news in the report as it sounds like they are still grinding away on their current proposed features and rollouts. I really hope TiVo throws some resources behind the series 3 box and pushes it out sooner than later. Just about everyone I know (not just early adopter types like me) keeps asking me when it will be released as it seems everyone is upgrading to HD televisions and wondering why their old tivo looks so blurry compared to their HD cable boxes.
