Default Tivo'ed?

" NEW YORK (Reuters) - TiVo Inc.(TIVO.O: Quote, Profile, Research) , maker of digital television video recorders, will next year add ways for viewers to see advertising and corporate logos even as they try to skip commercials, the company said on Wednesday.

Starting in March, most viewers who fast-forward through programs on their TiVo digital video recorder (DVR) -- a set-top box that saves shows on a built-in computer hard drive -- will see small pop-up billboards or logos related to the brands represented in some of the ads. ..."

Sucks big time. I use Tivo regularly to avoid commercials (and the political ads) thank goodness the election is over now...Smirky popping up on the screen all the time would have been torture.

I love Tivo! I have the one hooked up to Directv and wouldn't be without it. I don't mind seeing a logo for the 20 seconds it takes to fwd through commercials. TV networks need to make money somehow. God forbit they go the way of the TV license :scared:

I don't know, license would be worth it to get rid of some of the adds...certainly make them think a bit more about it...
So anyone tried the other service?

Mine comes on Sunday - had to wait for the SSN to come through! Can't wait - I had Tivo in the UK then SkyPlus and its hell without it!! Dish Network also offer DVR but no season pass feature or the suggestion facility - from the research I have done!
