German MTV Going Subscriber Only!

mtv_germany_to_become_subscriber_only

This is a STOOPID move!

Barely anyone tunes in at this point, as it is!

MTV Germany and Northern Europe allegedly plans to switch from being a free channel to subscriber only!

Network head Dan Ligtvoet expects the move to accelerate “growth in the landscape of subscriber services,” and continues:

"I expect more growth from it. Our strategy is to offer content everywhere the users want to see it. Infrastructure providers, these being the cable networks, want to grow - and not just in terms of the content they provide. They want to be part of the growing expansion of paid TV services.”

Yeah!

Good luck trying to convince people to buy a music channel with no music, and only badly dubbed-over episodes of Date My Mom and Room Raiders on loop for 16 hours a day!

Sounds like a solid plan!

TiVo Still Losing Subscribers, Just Not As Many As Usual!

Inneresting!

We didn't realize TiVo was even still around, but it could be (slowly) making a comeback!

In its most recent quarter, it lost 96,000 subscribers, which may seem like a lot, but it's actually its SMALLEST subscriber loss in over three years - back to where it was in 2004!

Wow!

Anyone have any insight into what that might mean for the future of TiVo??
