The New York Times > Technology > DirecTV Machine Will Compete With TiVo

The New York Times > Technology > DirecTV Machine Will Compete With TiVo: "The move ends an exclusive relationship between the companies that supplied TiVo with two million of its three million subscribers.
The satellite company hopes that many of its customers who now use machines with TiVo technology will switch to DirecTV's machine.
'We will still support our TiVo service, but our core marketing and sales efforts will be with our new DVR,' said Bob Marsocci, a DirecTV spokesman."

This helps to explain why TiVo is looking for new partners.
