The second paragraph got me: The new feature can help TiVo boxes compete against generic recorders provided by cable and satellite television operators, which are often distributed for free with a cable TV subscription and have dual tuners.
Its says FREE. That is like a free MySky box. Are we feeling ripped off yet?

nope... quite happy with a 200GB Panasonic HDD recorder until MCE or a competitor has a decent EPG system working in NZ (and reliable, and comprehensive). But yes, I agree that it seems ridiculous to pay that much to be allowed to use their equipment... How many more subscribers would they have if MySky was free... (or $99)

Well Sky in fact is operating as a monopoly in NZ for paid tv services. Even TelstraClear get their wholesale contents from Sky, and really heavily depended on Sky for most of the content. Sure TelstraClear sometimes back supply some contents to Sky too, but with Saturn digital TV and Sky tv all branded as Sky. One could not help but to see that Sky is a pure monopoly in this play field.
