The New DirecTV TiVo Is Still Delayed (2011)
Filed by Dave Zatz under Satellite TV, TiVo

Not that you had any doubts after seeing the beta correspondence and executive comments, and I don’t want to beat a dead horse. However, I did notice TiVo has updated their website to reflect that a 2010 DirecTV TiVo launch is off the table.

Earlier last week (below):

TiVo and DIRECTV have renewed their partnership, which means a new HD DIRECTV DVR featuring the Emmy® award-winning TiVo service is expected to launch to support satellite customers in 2010.

Later last week (above):

TiVo and DIRECTV have renewed their partnership, which means a new HD DIRECTV DVR featuring the Emmy® award-winning TiVo service is expected to launch to support satellite customers in the future.

Additionally, DirecTV.com now states:

We expect the new receiver to launch in early 2011 and we will provide more information as soon as it is available.

Yes, I’ve obsessively been refreshing that web page pretty regularly, anticipating this sort of update.

Also, if I were a TiVo investor I might be a little bit miffed. While TiVo isn’t material to DirecTV’s business, TiVo’s relationship with DirecTV is highly material to theirs. Given the timing, I find it unlikely TiVo was not aware that they possibly couldn’t get it done in 2010 when discussing their quarterly earnings in late August. They didn’t outright lie given their new, vague phraseology (as opposed to the earlier, specific “2010? declarations), but their comments could appear misleading assuming they knew the unlikeliness of launching this year.

“our plan remains to launch DIRECTV by year end”
“we hope to be able to push out late this year”
