Charlie said on the chat that the third party contracts (Tivo, UltimateTV) will continue after the merger.
Directv sent out an official press release about their increased partnership with TiVo, and the scheduled Q3 release of Series II DirecTiVos, a couple of months ago. Here's the link -Originally posted by John Corn
AllieVi, I've read where the Series2 TiVo's are showing up now at Best Buys......I haven't seen a thing regarding DirectTiVo's. :shrug:
These decisions were already made many many months ago, which would naturally pre-date the deal with RCA. I'd link the DBSForums thread, but they're still down.Originally posted by Mark
I think that Charlie has a role to play in the new DirecTV cards. Note - their no longer using CAS by News Corp (Echostar and News Corp aren't exactly friends ). I think he's trying to see if the DSS setup can be made secure enough for his wants, and if it can he's going to use it.
