Actually, no. As I understand it, they do not plan on offering CableCARD support, or an ATSC tuner, so their product won't be a competitor to TiVo. I think the plan is for it to basically be just a box to connect a television to the web.
Also, my understanding is that their plan is to (like Motorola, Cisco, and now Samsung) partner with service providers (though in this case, with broadband providers), not
try to navigate the circus of stupidity that comes from offering DVRs to the general public.
