Just received the TiVo Newsletter.

12 on demand channels.  It'll be interesting to see what they deliver. 



From next Wednesday, 14 July, TV on CASPA will now present you with 12 on-demand TV channels and we are proud to introduce our first TV Channel Sponsor: Cadbury! Cadbury is the sponsor of Bella TV our new women's channel - stay tuned as more and more TV Channel sponsors will be introduced over time. If you haven't yet set-up your CASPA wallet, you better get cracking as all content downloads from 14 July will be restricted only to those customers with CASPA wallets. Sure we will still have free content - but downloading it will now require a CASPA wallet. Opening a CASPA wallet means all downloads are pin protected which is the best way to ensure you are in control of all free and paid data downloads

This is a BIG step in the right direction. I know a lot of people who would invest in TiVo if it provided additional content (such a sports).

So since they are saying we need a wallet they must be paid on demand channels or are they free, does anyone know ?

yep, its going on my tivo box now.
All the new tV channels cost inbetween $1.95 and $2.95 per episode not the whole season, so if a season/series has 10 episodes it will cost you $29.95 to watch the series...
I couldn't see any free ones on there and a lot of the series are on freeview anyway...
And I thought there was something startling coming up like streaming TV or on demand sports..

I cant see how tivo can show any sports as sky has most of them under contract and even gets upset if the highlights are shown to much on the free channels at news time

Yeah, thats not right or very fair.
In OZ a percentage of sports has to be shown on free to air so everyone gets to see it..
Talk about a Sky Sport monopoly here !!

there is lots of sports not exclusive to sky.

a few weeks ago I switched on the TV on a sunday and different kinds of motor racing was on 3 (!) FTA channels at the same time. I hate motor racing.

ABs games and a lot of Super14 is shown on FTA too, just delayed by a couple of hours.

you will see some sport on prime only because Sky owns it

Bainn: This is a BIG step in the right direction


A reshuffle of categories. With added sponsorship. Delivered later than promised.

No new content, and no change to pricing. So do you STILL think it's a big step?

I really hope CASPA will change focus to building a customer base instead of prematurely scrabbling for revenue.




A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all
