TiVo’s Future: Mixed Media

  1. Buying Akimbo for their content…funny. Have they expanded beyond German canoeing video or are you taking the long, long, long tail perspective on this one.

  2. Hasn’t TiVo been in talks with Brightcove? I seem to remember some deal in the making, that would allow “premium” Brightcove publishers to push directly to TiVos. This would be huge, if only for the eventual possibility of all Brightcove publishers (and, hence, any video producer willing to work with them) from using TiVo as a distribution method.

  3. TiVo still has the chance to something interesting. There is plenty of opportunity in the link between what you can watch on your TiVo TV and what is online. So far though it appears very hard for TiVo to find the mass or partners to really pull it off.

  4. The problem that TiVo still has is they are making the process a relatively closed activity. You have to either negotiate directly with TiVo or have the wherewithall to contract with Brightcove to create a channel. TiVo has to open the process up (or we’re going to do it for them:)
