Much like the relentless Florida Gators in last night's national championship football game, TiVo
Having said that, it appears that yesterday's fare of TiVo releases involved truly newsworthy announcements. In addition, if you carefully ponder the new applications of the company's capabilities, I think you'll wind up as convinced as I am that broadband truly is about to blow the socks off those television aficionados who have not kept up with the array of new functionalities quietly being added to their providers' repertoires.
The first announcement -- or at least the first I noticed -- involved a new service that TiVo and Comcast
Having watched interactive functionalities trickle into the broadband world at a far slower rate than most investment community observers expected, I do believe that Comcast customers are in for a treat when they master this triumvirate of features. I also believe that it could be just a matter of time before we'll see similar joint announcements between TiVo and such other cable providers as Time Warner
Another noteworthy TiVo announcement Monday involved a partnership between the company and Roxio, a division of Sonic Solutions
So TiVo continues to advance the use of its product and features. And wonder of wonders, it may even be beginning to generate some positive attention in the investment community. However, it clearly will be many moons -- if ever -- before the company crosses the line into profitability. I believe there's a perfectly good (and relatively safe) way to invest in TiVo's solid capabilities: It's called buying shares in Comcast.
