Why are TiVo’s on sale? Woot Elite TiVo

What going on? Why are the new TiVo’s on sale?

http://www.woot.com/offers/tivo-prem...=email#tracked

First Tivo reduced the price and now they are being dump by Woot. I think even Amazon reduced the price.

Could this mean:
  1. A new or better TiVo box coming out.
  2. A deal with Comcast and or Cox to use TiVo boxs.

They are new but they have the old Elite badging. So they are getting rid of the rest of their Elite Stock. IN April they started selling the XL4 which is identical to the Elite but has a different nameplate and a different box that it is packaged in.

TiVo Premiere Elite is now TiVo Premiere XL4, right?

I mean, are there any spec bumps? Added features? Or it it just an aesthetic upgrade?

XL4 looks good though

They are identical in every way except for the name plate.

299+5 shipping = 304 in my state.

Works out to $700 with msd on lifetime.

I almost went for it. Had the woot browser window open all day.

I couldn't resist ... I had to bite. My 2TB TiVoHD w/lifetime has served me well, but now it's time for an upgrade!

The last quarterly wasn't all good news. I think TiVo want to get as many sub right now to be able to crow about growth and increase in revenue from subscriptions on its retail end for the next quarter. It's all about Wall Street and the stock price.

The retail decline has continued but it did slow some. I doubt that retail subscription numbers had anything to do with this sale and everything to do with them getting rid of inventory with the old Elite badging.

They had the quarterly results on May 30th. That had the subscriber data.

If they bring it to retail I'll get one. Assuming there is a nice increase in performance.

Are you asking in general or in context of the woot sale?

Will the sales of 544 Elite boxes on Woot! make much of a difference?

No. They're probably just clearing out stock from their supply chain. My theory is that Pioneer reminded them that they have a trademark on "Elite" for A/V equipment.

We can also hope that there might be an XL6 in the pipeline

Depend, 544 x $399.00 = $217,056 or 12 x $14.99 = $179.88 x 544 = $97,854.72 per year.

Yes either way it won't make much difference. Last quarter they still lost around 30k retail subs. Half compared to a year earlier but still a decreasing number of retail subs. Their growth has been from the MSOs

You make the MSO growth sound like a bad thing.

That was not my intention. Quite the opposite. Overall growth is good. Of course ideally it would be from retail and MSOs.
