TiVo in Australia is not looking good
Some disappointing news to TV junkies or couch potatoes, the main company behind TiVo (Australia) is pulling the plug according to this news report.
Launched as a competitor to Foxtel, TiVo Australia is now down to a service and support staff operation according to ChannelNews sources. A TiVo US executive said "We believe that TiVo in Australia is currently running a support operation and will not continue trading in Australia".
As a matter of fact, I've been waiting to have a TiVo, but too poor to own one (to Don: Antony is poor). Between Laurent and I, despite only five main channels (to Don: Australia is not as advanced as United States of America), we do have quite a few TV shows we record as we are not able to watch them when they are airing.
Currently, we use EyeTV Diversity (on my low end Mac Pro) and PlayTV (on my cheap PlayStation 3) for TV recording. I am grad that Sony released PlayTV for PlayStation, making the PlayStation 3 more of an entertainment centre device besides playing BluRay.
Perhaps, we shall consider the T-Box from Telstra since it does not cost us anything to use the service (besides the box).
