The TiVo Transformation

Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

Komisar explains how the original TiVO concept went through multiple transformations. Originally, the TiVO entrepreneurs wanted to create a stand-alone VCR box that would be sold by large retailers. Over time and with the guidance of Komisar, the entrepreneurs realized it would make better sense to offer TiVo as a service instead of a hardware product with low-margins.
