    Hi All,

    Just wondering if anybody knew how many TiVo subscribers were out there. I looked around but couldn't really get any firm numbers. Some figures say 'anywhere from 3-5 million' while others say those numbers include sub-licensed units, such as Direct-TV.

    Anyone? Beuler? Beuler?

    From their 10k http://investor.tivo.com/sec.cfm?DocType=Annual&Year= page 45

    1,726,000 TiVo Owned
    2,718,000 DirectTV Owned
    4,444,000 Total


    Not exactly what you want to read to your kids for bed-time stories but there is a lot of good stuff in 10k reports.

    Interesting nugget among many others...

    Thanks for that!

    I wonder how many of those Tivo's are networked :) Do the Direct-TV Tivo's also have HME capabilities or just the programming capabilities?

    Tivo will have its' latest results call on Wednesday, so we should see some updated figures. The DirecTivo boxes do not have HME capabilities (though some can be hacked to do so).

    Officially, no DirecTV models will network, neither do Series 1s.
    Only Series 2/3 standalones network, and some actually are. I have no idea how many, but I'd say quite a few.

    DirecTiVos do not officially have HMO/HME. As for "programming capabilities", what do you mean? Their UI is basically the same as standalones (SPs, wish lists, search by title, etc.) but there is no web based programming of them yet.

    What's up w/the 2nd account BTW?
