According to ZDNet Quickflix asks for restructuring of AU$11.7 million debt:



Australian subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) company Quickflix is looking to restructure the redeemable preference shares (RPS) owned by rival streaming service provider Stan in an attempt to continue competing in the sector.


Stan, a joint venture of Nine Entertainment and Fairfax Media, took ownership of the Quickflix RPS in July 2014, when Nine acquired the shares from HBO for an undisclosed amount. HBO had been issued the RPS by Quickflix in March 2011 during their commercial relationship.



ASX statement here.

For people wanting to purchase Tivos, would these units still work of TiVo folds?

Yes but there would be no EPG  so it's back to the old VCR method. At least the TiVo is am / pm time setup  so  I won't get it  hours out like I used to using 24 hour setup.
