Satellite provider DirecTV is launching a campaign to promote its own digital video recorder (DVR) to new and existing customers, says a recent article in the New York Times. DirecTV will still support the TiVo service and has priced its own service, which was developed by a company owned by News Corporation (the parent of DirecTV), at the same fee of $5.95 per month. The article alludes to a savings of $1 per month per subscriber, which should be highly impactful, considering DirecTV’s vast subscriber base.

HDTV sales continue to boom at the retail and custom level to the tune of over 1,000,000 sets per month, according to recent Consumer Electronics Association reports. HDTV is the home theater industry’s “killer application,” providing an outrageously good video experience on TVs that are ultra-thin. The problem is that a DTV (DTVs are TVs that can reproduce HD content but don’t necessarily have tuners built into them) rarely have HD tuners built into them even at the highest price points.

With HDTV sets selling at the million per month rate and no signs of slowing down anytime soon, consumers are quickly learning their desire for HDTV content is far greater than the current supply. Options for HDTV content often include either digital cable or satellite and a terrestrial antenna. Cable has its advantages in many markets, because it can reliably provide local HDTV feeds without the need for often clunky antenna. However, millions of early adopters, as well as HDTV newbies, flock to the satellite providers (DirecTV, Dish Network and upstart VOOM) for their content because of their large offerings of HDTV programming, HD-DVR equipment and access from practically every location in the United States.
