The strength of TiVo is their nttiraluey. It doesn't matter whether you get your signal OTA or through cable, over the internet or satellite, they are trying to build a system where consumers can aggregate all of the content together. By doing so, they're able to offer the best of all worlds. Every other solution requires you to lock into a single system. What if you like something on Hulu, but can't watch it on Netflix? Right now, you have to switch platforms whereas TiVo is in a position to serve up both sources of content. It would not surprise me one if we see Hulu on TiVo by the end of the year. By creating an even playing field, TiVo is able to adapt to all of the fragmentation. These internet sites aren't competitors, they are future partners.
