Weekend Wrap Up: Tivo, Linux HDTV & Broadcast Flag

Posted on 27 September 2004 by

TiVo announced that they’ve reached (*cue Dr Evil voice & pinky*) 2 million subscribers. It’s a good measure of how close PVRs (the concept) is to reaching critical mass and becoming common as DVD players. Your grandma wants a PVR =)

Slashdot posted an article on Linux HDTV support and the impending doom that could be Broadcast Flag

TiVo has set up a TiVo rewards plan where you can earn points redeemable for prizes for getting your friends on the TiVo bandwagon. Prizes include a TiVo logo’d Ipod … which is probably way easier to get than that other free ipod offer from gratis internet.
