DirecTV to get TiVo DVRs as early as next month

I have been on DirecTV for years now because my neighborhood has the worst cable company on Earth. I have had DVRs the entire time I have been on the service and I have always liked the DVRs with a few quibbles. DirecTV has been talking about launching TiVo DVRs for years, but that has never happened. The launch day is now close though so DirecTV fans that want TiVo will be able to get one possibly as soon as next month.

Best Buy Insignia TV with TiVo coming soon

Back in March, I mentioned that a new TiVo HDTV wearing the Insignia Best Buy store brand logo was in testing. Since then we haven't heard much about the TV until now. ZatzNotFunny has landed some photos of the packaging of the TV and that box has given away some of the details on the set and it sounds interesting. The TV is expected to hit Best Buy stores any day now for people to purchase.

TiVo is one of the most popular DVR options for consumers, and it's about to make its viewing experience even more convenient. The TiVo Premiere DVR set-top box connects directly to your cable service, replacing your cable box.

Wherefore Art Thou, TiVo?

Wherefore Art Thou, TiVo?

Early last year and late in 2009, tech fiends were debating the best product to come out in the first decade of the new millenium. My answer was decisive: TiVo. Not just the DVR in general, I mean, specifically, TiVo. I love TiVo. Tech friends, always quick to correct technical errors, would point out that TiVo actually appeared in 1999, but they did not have to tell me that. I owned one in 1999. I might have been TiVo’s best customer of all time. But this month I shut off my TiVo service and switched to something different.

TiVo simplifies subs (by axing cheapest plans)

TiVo simplifies subs (by axing cheapest plans)

I have never used a TiVo DVR, but I have been enamored with some of the features that the TiVo offers that my DirecTV DVR lacks. The main reason I have never stepped into the TiVo world is that the service and hardware is just overpriced in my book. I'm not going to buy your DVR, pay you for monthly service and then pay the cable company for service too. That hardly makes sense to me and I bet lots of people are the same way.

TiVo, Dish Network, EchoStar announce settlement of patent suit

The patent dispute between Dish Network, TiVo, and EchoStar has been raging on for a while now. The last time we spoke about the suit was in late April when the court presiding over the case ruled in TiVo's favor. The ruling to disable offending devices was split 7-5 in favor of disabling. To avoid many potentially angry customers EchoStar and Dish Network has settled the litigation with TiVo, and the settlement was certainly not cheap for them.

DISH Network and EchoStar have issued a statement regarding the recent ruling from the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals in their legal battle with TiVo over technology patent infringement. The battle has been ongoing since 2004 with rejected appeals and small victories along the way for DISH Network and EchoStar.
