TeleWorld

Does Tivo still use the Teleword paid program for downloading info? I don't see it listed in the onscreen guide.

Yes. You might be able to find it using Search by Title under the Find Programs menu.

They air on ION Networks and Discovery. (looks like your market does not have a Local ION affiliate and Cox provides the SD Satellite version only)

To be clear, AFAICT, they only use it for Showcase ad video nowadays, not guide data. Regardless, if you have an Internet connection for your TiVo, or even just a phone connection, you'll get your guide data.

they were listed on both channels last week, but not this week. How does Tivo get channel lineup changes via the guide data download or the TeleWorld program?

Via the guide data download.

This seems almost pointless these days. Does this really save Tivo any money?

Compared to a zillion (comparatively) separate Tivos downloading a video file over a possibly slow network? Seems to me it probably saves them TONS of money. I know it's not national, and was from a VERY long time ago, but someone told me that late night local commercials are VERY cheap.. in the TENS of dollars.

I had no idea it was that cheap. If that is the case, this is probably a much better option.

Well, again, this was literally a decade or two ago, and it was for a local (short) commercial, not a national infomercial.. But still, I would think that the infomercials on those cable channels in the middle of the night are comparatively cheap.

As CoxInPHX says, and only Showcases. However, I noticed that TiVo (Teleworld Paid Programmng) only airs for a 30 minute block, not the 1 hour it used to. Further, it seems TiVo has very little Showcase material these days as the full content is complete in about 6-10 minutes. Then they will repeat it. Then run the TiVo info videos. Then repeat the same Showcase content again. Some Showcase content is repeated THREE times in the 30 minutes. In other words, they are filling up the 30 minute block with far more repeating of the same material aired just 5 minutes ago along with running almost ANY sort of filler like TiVo how to videos more than they ever used to. It is a good questions to consider how much longer TiVo will continue with this method of delivery. Actually, servers are cheaper, but a fair number of broadband impaired TiVo owners would not get the Showcases and that would affect how much TiVo charges advertisers access to their TiVo subscribers.
