    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."

    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' :wired:

    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:
    Nice idea - giving people a choice.
