Good news for DirecTV TiVo users

April 12, 2006

DirecTV TiVoDirecTV has agreed to extend their current agreement with TiVo for another three years, ensuring that the existing 2.8 million subscribers who use the popular DVR solution with DirecTV will be able to continue using their TiVo branded devices.

I don’t know if this move indicates that DirecTV’s in-house NDS DVR solution wasn’t met with the favorable response they wanted or that they just need more time to perfect it.

Either way this is good news for current DirecTV/TiVo subscribers as well as TiVo, who is in the middle of won a lawsuit against Dish Network for patent infringement.
