Big Threats To TiVo: Freevo Is Not Its Name-o
from the do-it-yourself dept
Everyone seems to want to take a shot at TiVo these days. Despite the loyalty of TiVo subscribers, there's no shortage of articles wondering if TiVo can survive. However, among the threats TiVo has to deal with, this review of the various "free" (or cheap) versions of PVR software is probably not what TiVo should be worrying about. Do-it-yourself "TiVo-like" software has been around about as long as TiVo itself. And there are all sorts of devices that could be built for fun or to just avoid licensing fees, but that 0.001% of the population who would, probably doesn't keep TiVo executives up at night.
