TiVo To Launch In Australia “Before The End Of March”

The Brisbane Times is reporting that Seven Media Group has overhauled senior management responsibilities in preparation for the launch of TiVo within the next eight weeks. As they report:

TiVo is on track to launch before the end of March, with user trials under way and set-top boxes likely to be stocked by chains such as Harvey Norman, Dick Smith and retailers that have existing reseller relationships with Unwired and Engin. Unwired is likely to become the operator running TiVo’s customer billing and service functions.

That’s not far off at all. I’d love to hear from anyone who is current in the Australia trials about how it is going and what you think of the service, and just which features are enabled, or missing. You can contact me directly if you’d like, or leave a comment.

    I am very curious also as to what features will be available and more importantly which ones will be disabled. I’ve heard some rumors about a lack of commercial skipping functions. Can someone please confirm or deny. Thanks!

    I suspect that 30 second skip may be missing, but FFW should still work fine.
