Score 34 – Future Possibility: TiVo to focus on new strategies after disappointing ROI in 2015

Subject: TV, digital, print, OOH, social media

Company: Winmo


Opportunity: During the Q4 earnings call, TiVo’s general counsel Matt Zinn stated that consumer marketing investments will decline in 2016. Over the last few years, TiVo had increased consumer marketing expenses around launches such as Roamio and Bolt; however, the ROI simply isn’t there. Zinn said TiVo had not seen the growth in subscriptions that were necessary to justify those spending increases and continues to struggle for share against rival DVRs and home streaming services. 

Interim CEO Naveen Chopra does not foresee a significant drop in subscriptions due to this decrease. However, Zinn added that if TiVo can find higher ROI ways to effectively market its products, it will reassess spend levels. Hint, hint… You know what to do here, sellers and agency readers. Those with high ROI paid and earned media ideas that can increase subscriptions and the company’s customer base will likely be received positively.
