Despite TiVo’s profitable quarter, Engadget still has TiVo on deathwatch. While I don’t think TiVo is in any danger of dying, I agree with Engadget that one profitable quarter doesn’t imply financial well being as they struggle to find more subscribers.
So, the question is – If Engadget isn’t lifting the deathwatch now, when should they lift it? Here are a few suggestions:
- When the Comcast TiVo is rolled out nationwide.
- If TiVo prevails against EchoStar for over $100 million.
- If Comcast buys TiVo.
