    "TiVo Chief Executive Officer Tom Rogers said in an interview Tuesday that his company, which makes digital video recorders, is in discussions with HBO about distributing the service."

    Could an HBO app be coming soon to a TiVo near you?

    Yay! Hope the deal includes HBOGo and not just the new standalone service. I have no intention of getting rid of cable, but I'd love to be able to access HBOGo on my TiVo.

    I likely speak for many, when I say this would be great.

    Newer, as in, made in the last 5 years? The series 3 is a dinosaur. Especially the HD with its super-slow network connectivity. That box is like 8 years old.

    Come on. Sell the HD and buy a Roamio. You know you want to.

    What happens to the HD TiVo when your cable company starts to transition over to mpg4?

    You know you want to upgrade! :)

    Assuming the standalone HBO deal is the same as the HBOGo site, I wouldn't want it as there are only 2 reasons I keep HBO (and Showtime) are the original series and the boxing. Boxing is almost non-existent on HBOGo and Showtime Anytime. A few shows about it and some fairly old fights.

    I wouldn't mind the boxing on the standalone if the fights were delayed a day as that is usually the way I watch them now. But I wouldn't want them to not be available.
