Default TiVo Australias CASPA Free Ad-Funded Pay Per View TV and Movies by late 2010

fyi guys I just scored this exclusive interview/story for my blog :-)

Sent a link to Agg for the OCAU news homepage but I imagine he's asleep at this time of night so you can find out first

"Hybrid TV’s chief executive Robbee Minicola said that by late 2010 their CASPA video on demand service will have FREE advertiser funded pay per view TV shows and movies on TiVO Australia PVRs and other devices, in a one-on-one interview with Rambling Thoughts Blog late last week."

Full info at http://www.bhatt.id.au/blog/tivo-aus...es-and-movies/

What do you think of the plans for CASPA?

How can you have 'Free' pay per view. If it's free wouldn't it be just 'view'

good question. its hard to describe

the service is pay per view. but if you choose, instead of you paying, the advertiser pays

Why not quote the article you linked and, if I'm reading this correctly, you wrote? Far clearer:
Quote:
From September the CASPA TV content will be sponsored whereby you can pay eg: $1.95 for an episode or choose to make XYZ brand pay instead.

XYZ brand is then the sole advertiser during that program and if you choose this option youíll be forced to watch several unskippable ads during the show which canít be fast forwarded.
Nice idea - giving people a choice.
