On Aug. 24, Motley Fool Stock Advisor pick TiVo (NASDAQ:TIVO) released earnings for its fiscal 2006 second quarter, which ended July 31.

  • Service and technology revenues of $40.7 million met Street estimates, but break-even EPS was well ahead of expectations. Still, like last year, spending on sales and marketing is on the rise.
  • Subscription growth slowed considerably. TiVo-owned net subscriptions fell to 40,000 during the quarter, from 63,000 during the same period a year ago.
  • Management intends to invest to boost subscription growth. The increased spending is now expected to delay profitability, which was expected in the fourth quarter.
