DirecTV to Unveil Their New Generic HDTV on Monday

PVR Wire “The New York Times is reporting that DirecTV is reportedly set to unveil a PVR on Monday 10 October as part of a $30 million advertising campaign. The move will be viewed as a direct challenge to TiVo’s dominance of the digital video recorder market in the U.S.”

Correction: Ed Bott just rightly pointed out that it is NOT the HDTV DirecTV DVR being unveiled on Monday, but rather it is the non HDTV version and the HDTV DirecTV DVR won’t be out until mid-2006. Doh! I hate it when I get these things wrong. Don’t worry though folks, I just fired my fact checker over this.

    Read the linked story from the NY Times more closely.

    “DirecTV’s standard DVR, originally set to be released this past June, will be introduced in late October, and another model featuring high-definition service will be introduced in mid-2006.”

    Sorry, no HDTV till next year.

    Maybe your ex-fact checker can go work for Paul Thurrott?
