Burn down their office?

More constructively though, where do they get there money from? Can we put pressure on the organisations supplying them with cash to make them release the EPG information?

Oooh. Interesting idea! I have no idea where to begin-- anyone?
Like a boycott... Letting advertisers know that their products will be boycotted until they urge Maori TV to give TiVo an EPG? I'd organise it but I'd need to know how many I have with me before I put in the time.


the power of the consumer!!

Not quite. I was thinking they probably get a large part of their income from the taxpayer. Probably TPK or some similar source. It's sometimes possible to influence these people if you can master the "policy doublespeak" that is common in government circles.

3Bit HQ is a minute walk from Maori TV.  We could then do a BBQ and beers in the park across the road from their offices.
