Showcase?

Okay, I give up - what is a Showcase and why all of a sudden and I seeing them with a star, with coupons? Also, one is simply a Season Pass just like five others I have but they don't show as a Season Pass.

Kinda irritating.

Any help is appreciated....Thank you...Scott

Showcases are special promotions that are offered exclusively to TiVo subscribers. They've been around since Series 1 although there have been many fewer of them in the last few years.

First I've seen them in the three months I've owned my Roamio. Is there any way to turn Showcase off, particularly the promotional offerings???

LOL, noobs. Um, no - you get to ignore all the ads Tivo sends your way just like the rest of us but you can't turn them off.

What about the one Showcase that is actually a Season Pass for "24 Live Another Day?" I have about five Season Passes for other shows and they don't show with the stupid yellow star....any ideas why this one does?

It is a showcase for the new 24. It is an ad. It has nothing to do with your current season passes.

Ah, ok well that makes more sense, although irritating. Thank you....
