Well, I'll start with the wild speculation!

Real-time recording adjustments for sports (or other) overruns! Now that would be awesome.

It's on the East coast to monitor those network feeds live, since all of Tivo's other staff is in California.

And I'm assuming that staff/operations costs are significantly lower in Durham than in the middle of Silicon Valley in California.

I think portions of the analytics company they bought (TRA) are based in the Carolinas.

Sounds like a sweet gig, but it's likely to only pay minimum wage.

Much better than just minimum wage.

• Ideal candidate will have broad knowledge and passion for television, movies and sports

Doesn't sound like just sports. Since it says real time, I'll speculate it's metadata for 2nd screen experiences.

Edit: reading info about that division, seems like into ad impression -> social sentiment tracking. Probably something not interesting.
