    TiVo just posted this on FB. I wonder what they've got cooking. Any speculation?

    Interested to hear what this exercise will be...

    Android streaming support is one thing we've heard for the show.

    Probably something to do with OOH streaming. They're supposedly working on an update that will allow better adaptive streaming and streaming over LTE. Maybe they want people to wander around the show, or Vegas, showing people how they can watch TV on their phone. Total guess, could be way off.

    Also hoping they add browser support to the Stream. After doing some research, and testing on my own, you can play an HLS stream in a browser as long as Flash is installed. So they just need to wrap it in an HTML5 UI and we should be able to stream to PCs.

    An Android streaming announcement is a lock for the show. Whether or not release corresponds with the show dates, I can't say. I also know an updated Amazon experience is in the pipeline - between that, the new Netflix, and the Opera store I wouldn't be surprised to see an announcement related to new apps or such.

    They'll have a way more public presence this year with a booth in one of the convention center halls, versus the more private meeting area they've done in years past. Doesn't necessarily mean they'll announce anything grand, but they'll surely have more foot traffic and a larger stage to tell the Roamio story.

    Whatever it is will probably only be half baked.

    Why? Tivo could record from a network or USB OTA tuner just as easily as a built in one. I don't believe this is ever going to happen but I don't see any technical reason it couldn't.

    Which is why you have to be very careful what you order when dining in the TiVo Cafe.

    There probably won't be any super large announcements because the Roamio series is still so new. Probably some minor updates, android streaming, etc.
    But you never know...

    I think you have a pretty good guess. The way they are asking for volunteers, this would make sense.

    I've never been to CES, but it sounds like data speeds can be terrible (especially on the upstream end). This is a report from last years event:

    http://venturebeat.com/2012/01/17/best-cell-provider-of-ces-2012/

    So demoing the forthcoming adaptive streaming capability may be interesting. Hopefully there's enough bandwidth to work with this year.

    ETA: guess January 2012 would actually be 2 CES shows back.

    Broadcast Bender: Three TV Fans Will Attempt to Watch 87 Hours of Television, During the TiVo(R) TV Binge-Viewing World Record Attempt

    With the New TiVo Roamio(TM), TiVo Intends to Break GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS' Longest Marathon Watching Television Record With a Live Audience at CES 2014

    SAN JOSE, CA -- 01/03/14 -- TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO) will bring the comfort of a living room, its highly acclaimed new TiVo Roamio and hours of the best television content to the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) floor this January, when three small screen fanatics will continuously watch TV for nearly four days in an attempt to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS(R) record for the longest marathon watching television record. As part of the TiVo TV Binge-Viewing World Record Attempt,* which kicks off on Monday, January 6, the three TV aficionados will attempt to watch more than 86 hours and 37 minutes of television in order to break the existing world record.

    TiVo's TV Binge-Viewing World Record Attempt will take place throughout CES in TiVo's booth -- number 7920, in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The attempt will begin at 7 p.m. on January 6, with a projected end date of January 10. The current world record for the longest marathon watching television is held by two Californians who watched consecutive episodes of FOX's "The Simpsons" for more than 86 hours in 2012.

    "Now, more than ever, we're seeing a huge range of buzz-worthy television content -- from sitcoms, to reality TV, to dramas -- and these shows are permeating our culture, becoming a part of daily conversation. As a result, consumers are increasingly binge-viewing popular TV programming, and this phenomenon has truly gained social acceptance," said Tom Rogers, President and CEO of TiVo. "TiVo Roamio is only way to get all your regular channels and streaming content like Netflix and Hulu, while also getting live and recorded TV and video-on-demand, even while getting it to your iPad or iPhone for viewing anywhere -- it allows you to binge on anything and everything, anywhere, anytime like nothing else out there."

    Television and radio host and self-proclaimed "TV superfan" Chris Cashman will serve as host and emcee of the TiVo TV Binge-Viewing World Record Attempt, and dozens of staff and volunteers will serve as official timekeepers and witnesses, observing the guidelines set by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS.

    To watch the contestants in real time during the world record attempt, follow TiVo on Twitter (@TiVo) or follow the #TiVoWorldRecord hashtag. Videos summarizing the record attempt will be posted daily at YouTube.com/TiVo. You can also visit http://dropc.am/p/YsCvYJ for a live stream or, if attending CES, please visit TiVo booth number 7920 to witness the attempt.

    During the TiVo TV Binge-Viewing World Record Attempt, each participant will get a five-minute break (for sleep, trips to bathroom, etc.) for every one hour of the attempt. The four participants are allowed to eat and drink while watching TV and can also change channels while looking at the screen, although talking on the telephone or reading is prohibited.
