    Good news for Tivo Stand Alone subs, and certainly good for the company.

    "In an interview, Perrette said NBC Universal might like to sell single episodes of two different shows together, for example, or let customers who have already purchased several episodes buy a full season at a prorated price."

    It really isn't a big benefit to TiVo Unbox users since they can record most of these shows anyways (sure getting pilot episodes is nice I guess). The real issue is if Apple will end up taking some Unbox only studios over to iTunes. This game of cat and mouse isn't really benefiting users.

    If they allow Unbox users to download the pilots before their schedule start, then it is a :up: . It says it will start on Sept 10th, which is a few weeks before they start, IIRC.

    The article says the Bionic Woman pilon "will appear starting Sept. 10." It's not clear whether it will be downloadable then or merely be listed for future download.

    Good news. Now if we could just get the networks to use Tivo iPreview tags in their promos/commercials.


    CBS offered a sneak peek of "The Class" last year, but that was a teleworld broadcast, not TivoCAST.

    Until they make these offerings available in widescreen, I don't feel drawn to patronize Unbox.

    I agree completely. I really enjoyed and appreciated the $15 credit given for trying out Unbox. However, it really only pointed out that I'm not inclined to pay Amazon for 4:3 material to get stretched on my 16:9 TV.

    I like the service and I'll even use it once they offer widescreen content.
