007 Hits Tivo, Courtesy Of Best Buy

from the keeping-up-those-promotions dept

TiVo keeps on coming back with different promotion attempts to show broadcasters that TiVos can be good for advertising – since so many seem to be afraid of the amazing, disappearing commercial. The latest, in association with Best Buy, is to forcefeed James Bond snippet movies to various TiVo machines. It’s good to see them experimenting with these different business models, but they haven’t said much about how successful any of these moves have been.

Re: No Subject Given

Yeah, I don’t know that it’s the smartest move, or that it will work at all, and I don’t think I was suggesting that one way or the other.

What I’m happy about is the fact that they’re at least TRYING something. While I doubt I would click on such a thing either, it’s certainly not as intrusive as a pop-up ad. But, that’s not the point. The point is that they’re at least experimenting, which is why I asked about the success rate of it.
