News to me
Honestly, I didn't even know TiVo was still around. I thought that was phased out a decade or so ago. They must be getting annihilated by Netflix and Amazon.

Ted Malone chimes in
Added an update to mention that TiVo exec Ted Malone posted some additional info about the pre-roll ad initiative and dropped a hint about the coming TiVo+ service. JB

Re: Skippable ads are not forced viewing
You make a valid point, but it's also not all that uncommon to see advertisers buy slots that are skippable. YouTube, for example, allows viewers to skip ads on a very frequent basis just based on my own use of that service. But I'll also acknowledge that YouTube's viewing and ad volume dwarfs what TiVo is attempting to pull off, so my comparison here is not completely apples to apples. And if too great a # of TiVo users skip those ads, this idea will likely die on the vine.  JB

Skippable ads are not forced viewing
What advertiser buys a skippable ad?  This idea makes no sense.

TIme to move on.
I have been a Tivo customer since 2002 and was literally looking to upgrade my Roamio and 4 minis to the latest model, but now I will look for another platform. If the service was free, I understand supporting it with ads, but I pay a subscription for the service.

This would be like Verizon forcing me to listen to an ad before making a phone call. 

With so many options available now a days, I speculate that this will be the final straw to Tivo's downfall.
