TiVo Sells Out
TiVo to add banner ads to service when fast forwarding | PVRblog In the really bad news department, PVRblog is reporting today that TiVo will begin to place banner advertisements on your screen when you are fast forwarding.
As one of the whole points for people getting a TiVo is to remove obtrusive advertising from your life, it seems like a really bad move to force advertising on people at the exact moment that they are using your technology to avoid advertising.
This act points to the desperation of TiVo and their management team and although it might help them in the short run it will most certainly backfire in the long run.
