Where Have You Gone Mr. TIVO Man


A Newsome turns his lonely remote to you (woo woo woo).

If I sound bitter, it’s only because I am.

The reason I write so much about the impending death of TIVO is because I love my TIVO so much. It makes me mad that I am going to lose such great (and expensive) technology. But if I (like a lot of TIVO’s customers) am a DirecTV customer unwilling to go backwards to cable, then I have no choice but to find an alternative, since DirecTV is killing TIVO slowly, but surely.

Here’s an article in Forbes that says DirecTV may start shipping non-TIVO DVRs next month. So the end that I have been dreading is about to begin.

What’s that you say Mr. R. Murdoch, Mr. TIVO has up and gone away?
