The communities getting the new HD channels are New York City, Mount Vernon, Hudson Valley and New Jersey. Time Warner Cable now has the HD programming that matters most to New Yorkers, with all the HD games of all nine New York sports teams and NY1 in HD, said Howard Szarfarc, Executive Vice President of Time Warner Cable s NYC Region. Thursday, August 26, 2010, 09:09 AM Washington, August 26, 2010 TiVo announced yesterday that it lost another 125, 000 subscribers in the second quarter. The DVR service reported that it had 4 million subscribers at the end of the second quarter, compared to 3 million at the end of last year s second quarter. TiVo reported in May that it had 5 million subscribers at the end of the first quarter, a 100, 000 decrease from the end of the fourth quarter of 200 The decline suggests that the DVR company seems incapable of maintaining its subscriber base. TiVo reported having 3 million subscribers in 2006, but the sub numbers have been dropping steadily ever since due to increased competition from satellite and cable DVR services. Thursday, August 26, 2010, 05:44 AM TiVo said yesterday that it hopes to introduce a DIRECTV HD DVR by year s end. DIRECTV and TiVo announced in 2008 that it would renew their marketing partnership and launch a new HD DVR in the second half of 200 However, that deadline passed and company executives pushed the launch date to the first half of 20 TiVo CEO Tom Rogers said last April that the DIRECTV set-top would be available in the latter part of this year. He did not offer a specific reason for the delay. And yesterday in a conference call following the company s release of its second quarter statement, Rogers hedged again on the exact timing for the box. Tuesday, August 24, 2010, 02:31 PM Can 3D TV be harmful to your health? Several medical experts have concluded that it could give some Americans headaches and feelings of nausea. And now a new research study finds that many consumers agree that 3D could pose a medical risk. According to Strategy Analytics, 17 percent of 2, 000 consumers say they believe that watching 3D programming could be harmful to their eyes. The report was cited by Home Media Magazine. And another 55 percent said they weren t sure if they would be harmed or not. TV makers are desperately trying to persuade Americans that 3D HDTV is the next big thing. But many consumers have expressed reluctance to buy a new set, having just purchased a set during the nation s Digital TV transition. Now, the survey results regarding medical concerns would seem to create another obstacle in the path of 3D TV. Monday, August 23, 2010, 09:41 AM Washington, August 23, 2010 DIRECTV next month plans to sell an online version of the NFL Sunday Ticket to non-subscribers for the first time in its history. The package, which enables fans to watch all NFL games every Sunday, will cost non DIRECTV subscribers 350 for the entire season. The satcaster says the games, which will be available on computers, the iPad and smart phones, will be displayed in super high resolution. At its web site, DIRECTV calls the video HD quality streaming. And a DIRECTV spokesman tells the New York Daily News that the online video will be full 720p video resolution. Comcast Puts Online VOD Over HDTV? Tuesday, February 24, 2009, 05:46 AM Comcast Puts Online VOD Over HDTV? The cable operator announces a Net-based VOD service. Washington, February 24, 2009 Comcast, which has been criticized for failing to provide more High-Definition channels, has announced that it will debut a Net-based Video On Demand service by year s end. That s according to an article by Home Media Magazine. In most markets, Comcast now provides only about 40 high-def channels, which is half as many than what s offered by other TV providers such as DIRECTV, Dish Network, AT T s U-Verse and Verizon s FiOS; those companies now deliver from 80 to more than 100 HD channels. The paucity of high-def channels has led to widespread criticism of Comcast s HD service on Internet message boards, including the TV Predictions Reader Forum, and the company recently reported that it lost subscribers in 200 But rather than announce any new HD channels, Comcast this week said it would introduce an Internet VOD service called OnDemand Online, which would include programs and movies from TV networks and Hollywood studios. The cable operator already offers a varied VOD lineup on its TV service. Comcast continues to disappoint its high-def audience. Instead of focusing its time and money on signing up HD channels HD channels that would be viewed by its core audience, the TV viewer Comcast has now fallen in love with the online user. This is a major mistake and more evidence that Comcast s management has lost touch with its audience. It s no wonder that Comcast is losing subscribers.
