ITEM 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On March 31, 2005, we entered into a new services agreement with DIRECTV, Inc. that amends and restates the parties prior services agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, DIRECTV and TiVo may each distribute software tags within applicable video signals to enable advanced recording and advertising capabilities on DIRECTV DVR receivers with the TiVo® service. In addition, DIRECTV and TiVo may each distribute audio and video elements for advertising and promotion to such DIRECTV DVR receivers, with TiVos distribution rights subject to certain content limitations. Subject to certain restrictions, both DIRECTV and TiVo may sell advertising and audience measurement data under the agreement, with each party retaining all their respective revenues generated from such sales. The agreement also provides for DIRECTV to receive certain audience measurement reports from TiVo related to use of DIRECTV DVR receivers with the TiVo service, and for TiVo to sell additional custom research services to DIRECTV and DIRECTV advertising clients at the request of DIRECTV. The term of the amended and restated services agreement expires concurrently with termination or expiration of the development agreement previously entered into between the parties.
The foregoing description of our amended and restated services agreement with DIRECTV, Inc. is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions of the agreement that will be filed as an exhibit with the Companys Form 10-K for the year ending January 31, 2005.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
