There has been a lot of speculation on tomorrow’s TiVo announcement. For the announcement to really WOW us, it needs go beyond additional recording capactiy and an improved HD interface. Some potential examples include:
- The new TiVo will bypass the cable networks and allow your favorite shows to be directly downloaded or steamed to the box. Alternatively, TiVo needs to find away to be embraced by cable systems and seamlessly integrate into their infrastructure.
- The introduction of a new extensible TiVo platform. The platform would include tools for anyone especially content providers to easily build applications and/or provide content through TiVo.
Of course, there are lots of other ideas that are incremental but they are not game changers by themselves. Stayed tuned for the scoop tomorrow night!
