NDS Eyeing DirecTV DVR Deal4/27/2004 10:30 AM Eastern
NDS Group plc chief executive Abe Peled is taking aim at TiVo Inc.’s digital-video-recorder agreement with direct-broadcast satellite provider DirecTV Inc., Reuters reported.
“We are competing with TiVo," Peled said. "We think our technology is more operator-friendly.”
TiVo’s deal with DirecTV expires in February 2007. The vendor relies on DirecTV for most of its subscriber growth, Reuters said.
