Don’t look for any public trials this year of TiVo and Comcast’s heavily anticipated offering. The MSO says it expects some market trials in the first half of ’07. On TiVo’s earnings call Wed, Tom Rogers was upbeat about the partnership and said TiVo plans to showcase the product at CES in Jan. "The excitement level with Comcast, I think it is fair to say, has only grown as we get near to the point of being able to get this out to the public," he said. Cox has a similar deal in place and is expected to deploy TiVo software in some markets during the 1st half of ’07 (Cfax, 8/25). "Specific to Cox, we have engaged with them in very productive meetings, as we are making progress toward refining the scope of the product for that MSO, and we continue to have conversations with other cable operators…," Rogers said.
