Some justification for picking DishDVR over TiVo

Whatever happened to TiVo being the champion of personal freedom and choice in television viewing?

Apparently the company is rolling out a “feature” that will insert ads on the screen when you are fast-forwarding (through commercials, most likely).

TiVo is also looking at ways to enable eCommerce through your TV and generally squeeze as much revenue as possible out of users. I don”t have a problem with features that don”t interfere with regular viewing, but inserting commercials into the dead space of subscribers skipping commercials is downright anti-customer.

And people pay TiVo $13 a month?

Thank you, Dish Network.
