    I just came across this rather embarrassing web page on the Tivo UK website. It seems that Tivo now care so little about their public image in the UK that they are still prepared to say that Sky is responsible for all of the marketing of its services in the UK.

    See www.uk.tivo.com/5.3.asp

    Surely they can get rid of this now purely historic and entirely inaccurate web page in terms of the current arrangements for Tivo UK.

    Also as things now stand Sky are only responsible for Tivo UK customer services and so far as marketing of PVRs goes they are only interested in selling Sky+ and Sky HD in the UK.:eek::mad::thumbsdown:

    Well in view of the fact that:-

    Well I assume that Tivo UK's BSkyB marketing experts have taken the decision that the public only want Sky+ units because they clearly work so much better than Tivos and not at all because Sky+ units are simply far more profitable for Sky to sell.:rolleyes::eek::mad:

    It would reflect current reality rather than ancient history that no longer applies.

    A current Google search is still finding this page though, even if it is no longer linked to the home page.

    Obviously they are in on the conspiracy in view of the other mysterious Google link pointed out by your main commercial rival to a yet to be created page on the Freesat website intended to sell UK Freeview Tivos.

    I just phoned it through to the Daily Mail; if we can work a Muslim, Traveller or drunk 21 year old girl in, they'll run it.

    Carl, you're on the right lines, but this would be more realistic:
