New York Times: Steal This Show

Posted on 30 January 2005 by

The New York Times (via Slashdot.org article: It’s not TV it’s MythTV) published an article today called Steal This Show about the booming PVR trend. It focuses on MythTV, Bittorrent, and the response of the networks. To my eye, it’s a pretty negative article, connecting the PVR trend to DVD piracy, by linking it to P2P file sharing via Bittorrent and Videora. The article goes on to report CBS’ response as a move towards On Demand services.

Well, there’s no such thing as bad publicity, or is there?
