Time Warner’s New “Start Over” Service
New York Post Online Edition: I saw this story earlier on Bloomberg today and just really didn’t want to blog about it. It looks like Time Warner is going to begin offering a service that allows you to start a television show at any time during the airing of the show. From what I understand there are no real DVR features – no fast forwarding through the commercials, no pause, no season pass. A digital idiot box of sorts.
I guess what really gets my dander up is that this is just about the most useless service I think I’ve ever heard of and yet many people, again, the uninitiated, will assume that this is as good as a TiVo or MCE machine when it’s really more typical crap being spoon fed by the cable operators and their evil cousins the broadcast networks.
