why just one city? Why not all of Mexico? Or is that next? And how many costumers does Cablevision have in Mexico City?

TiVo is going to need a much larger pool than that if this is going to make any kind of an impact.
CABLEVISION in Mexico City = Grupo Televisa
Sky Mexico (dth satellite) = Grupo Televisa

Sky Mexico uses NDS dvr's. CABLEVISION in Mexico City to be using Tivo dvr's????

very interesting.....

You'd figure NDS would be a shoe-in to be Televisa's dvr supplier, seeing how they've already got a deal with them for Sky Mexico.

Nevermind the pool size, that's kind of an impact on that fact alone.
I'm very surprised at how little this was talked about here today.

That would be if they can make a DVR compatible with their cable system. The way it seems to me, they are offering a Standalone TiVo as an addon to the cable service.
The idea of NDS possibly not being able to make a DVR compatible with their cable system made me think, just what system are they using?

Microsoft® TV Server and Microsoft TV Advanced client software running on a Motorola system (DCT64162/16 dvr). as danylati told us

Could maybe they be using the Comcast/Motorola port?;)

Well, that explains why NDS ain't in there.
