i looked up advertisement, and these two definitions seems to describe the guide entries:
oed online: A notice or announcement in a public medium promoting a product, service, or event
merriam-webster: a public notice
I have TE3 so not having to experience all of the recent ad and Tivo plus drama, but I am curious if you don't accept the plus terms, do you still see the channels in the guide?
So happy to be using TE3!!!
But with TE3 don't you lose other features? I don't think I could live with the auto skip now that I am used to it. Or do you still get all those features too?
"Watch Classic Primetime Shows on Filmrise"
"Free Classic Famile Movies and TV Shows on Filemrise Family:
"Watch Crime TV for Free in Unsolved Mysteries"
"Watch People are Awesome"
"Watch the most Facinating Top videos of All Time"
Looks like ads to me...
select shows I can click the skip button to skip all commercials. No automatic ship. This is fine with me. I have a clean guide and easy to use functions. It's enough for me I am happy the way it is.
Additional lines? Well that's a Plus!
Now that I’m not using the Guide, I’m liking using the the left arrow for favorites or up arrow for what I guess is sort of like the T3 live guide more than the Guide. I just hope Tito doesn’t muck that up too
Any thoughts on why my Bolt with latest software no longer has ads in the guide? As far as pre roll goes, never saw one. Not yet anyway. Bolt had the ads in the guide but as of yesterday I see none. Also...why is Roamio exempt from these ads? Is Roamio that far behind, hardware and software wise?
Mine are still there and customer support said there is no way to remove them. Consider yourself lucky.
I would prefer hitting the lottery but no guide ads will have to do!
I've been with TiVo since series 1. It hasn't been easy given the continual decline of my cable company Cox. I'm forced to use a cable card which COX struggles to support. And now must endure their cable adapter which remains as a technical issue with little support. I love TiVo, Cox not so much. So I continue to pay escalating cable rates and put up with a company I loath just to hang on to TiVo. Now TiVo begins to undermine the product by forcing this baggage on their customers. I don't care if you call this advertising or guide trash, it's still a negative in my opinion and something that adds to my difficulty in hanging in with TiVo. Let's hope the TiVo gods listen to their customers and give us a option to remove this negative.
So far i,ve managed to avoid clicking on tivo plus or any of the channels in the guide. I have zero interest in any of those channels.
User Interface litter. Whoever came up of this method of introducing a streaming channel by brute force should be terminated. The implementation of the channel itself is amateurish and desperate. They needed to really work on updating their existing outdated streaming platform so they could compete with the $25 sticks, but wasted energy on this instead. Unbelievable.
They just showed up in my guide yesterday will ignore them as usual.
Never use the guide except for scheduling one pass recordings.
Mostly live in my shows when using the TiVo.
I suggest no one actually select any of those junk channels - maybe TIVO will consider it a failed experiment and get rid of them
or, double the frequency of their occurrence, just in case they're being missed?
Agreed, but I decided I'm just going to cancel over it. The interface has been getting super slow lately too, I'm just overall annoyed
I'm ready to cancel too.... Even though I love my Tivo and hate the Cox DVR sitting unplugged next to it.
We need to organize our opinions and actions to keep Tivo in check. This looks like abuse to me.... Who knows a good lawyer?
...I've unchecked 'video downloads' from device preference in my tivo account. Might help?
TO FACEBOOK, LAD'S!
