The new TiVo Premier was announced just a few days ago and people were wondering if the DirecTV/TiVo deal would get the new stuff. The answer to that is no. While TiVo might be moving ahead with new software and hardware the DirecTV version will be on the old stuff.
“Their [DirecTV’s] next implementation of us is not going to have this look and feel,” said TiVo’s Peter Aquino. “It’s based on the classic TiVo.”
This doesn’t bother me a bit. DirecTV has been making lots of improvements to their own DVR and I don’t see what TiVo is bringing to the table. But it has been a year and a half since their partnership so who knows if it will even happen.
