This weekend I was looking around Amazon Instant Video and reading more about the service being available on TiVo US.

What a shame NZ licenses to redistribute content is pratically a Sky TV monopoly. Amazon Instant Video on Tivo, instead of CASPA, would make it a winner in my view.

That would be brilliant. I haven't utilised CASPA since it first came out as there is just little on there that interests us. The content didn't seem to get updated that frequently.

That would be pretty cool, a legitimate way to get content. As long as they didn't wind up the prices too high like normally happens down this end of the world.

In the US Netflix/Hulu are both available on Tivo.

That would be cool too.

My folks bought a TiVo in the weekend to go with a new TV purchase, and I have to say, for $199, it's pretty good value.

If Amazon instant video was on TiVo, and with content set at reasonable prices, I would buy a TiVo at the drop of a hat.

Hey! It only took what... 2 years to get Maori Television and Prime TV EPGs... Getting such internet media services such as Amazon, Hulu, Netflix should be easy! 10 years tops!

Although that doesn't appear to have been their fault, as they were clearly telling people to contact maori and sky to ask them to put it on tivo..


Why TVNZ never put TVNZ on demand onto it, and instead allowed the PS3 ondemand is beyond me. There was huge potential there. Caspa did used to have a lot more content on ot, but it looks like their content is vastly reduced. Also the pricing is quite high, especially as it uses bandwidth. If they made movie downloads say a couple of dollars, or even have a monthly subscription for all you can eat movies, or 10 download per month, I am sure it would have been more successful.

CASPA has the potential to be great but currently it's not work looking at . Amazon VOD would be great but I can't see it happening here for the reasons freitasm said..

personally i think the ball has been dropped on tvio NZ. The partnership with tvnz should of seen tivo being allowed to put tvnz on demand on it, but alas we all know tvnz is more interested in pay tv with sky than free to air, lets hope the new ceo changes that. Also a shame that tivo has youtube in the US but not here.
