TiVo Sees Record Customer Losses
Worst quarterly subscriber drop ever
TiVo's deals with cable operators and their recent DVR patent wins
haven't done much to keep TiVo customers around. The company just suffered their worst quarter ever
, losing 314,000 customers in three months. TiVo's market share (2.76 million) is now less than 8% of the estimated total 38 million US DVR households. TiVo would probably be helped greatly if Comcast would ever get around to their national TiVo deployment, but three years after the deal's announcement, TiVo for most Comcast customers is a nowhere to be found.
