Hi-- don't have TiVo yet but I heard that TiVo has no EPG for these two channels-- is that true? If so, is it still possible to record on there (if you know the times of things you want to see...)
Many thanks

Correct, both channels are still missing on the TV EPG...

Thank you Mauricio-- do you know if it is still possible to record those channels (if I found their EPGs online...)

And to answer your other question. yes you can set manual recording times based on channel, time, duration and also make it weekly, daily, weekdays etc.

It would appear my sarcastic tweets to primetv don't get much done behind the scenes. Still no Prime EPG... still.. a little boy waits.

All the indicators are that Sky's top strategic aim is to prevent any other pay tv operators from ever getting off the ground. CASPA is public enemy number one, and Sky will do anything they can to nobble it - no matter how trivial. TVNZ and Sky could agree to share office space and you still wouldn't see the Prime EPG on Tivo.

What an incredibly immature business practice!

Thanks all for the help, glad to know I can still record Prime, though I almost want to boycott it out of principle now!

I don't regret dumping SKY Television for TiVo.  We watch more free-to-air channels than SKY and once you've got TiVo recording everything you want and more (via suggestions) you have no shortage of programming.

I would like to know what is on the Prime television channel but reality is, it never really was any good anyway and would only be a matter of convenience having the electronic guide now.

Sky's excuse is that they won't give the Prime EPG to Tivo until Tivo supports reporting viewership data (so Sky can determine how many people are watching, and therefore price ads appropriately)




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

Yes but could Freeview ever provide such data either?

Also, anyone know what Maori TV's excuse is?

I emailed MaoriTV back in November last year... this is the reply.. I'm not sure even THEY know why they are not providing EPG data...
Kia ora Joseph

I just saw this http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/gadgets/2998793/Sky-Maori-TV-rain-on-TiVos-parade

"Maori TV boss Jim Mather "just decided that he didn't want to do it". "
Wha? Really?

Thanks for the information. I think there could be something in raising this again.
