TiVoCast Adds Ego TV on Veoh and SomaGirls TV on Veoh

TiVo has added two more channels to TiVo, both from Veoh obviously given their names, Ego TV on Veoh and SomaGirls TV on Veoh.

Ego TV describes themselves thusly:

Success. Prosperity. Fame. All are a part of your identity – your Ego. Ego TV is a new multi-platform TV network that’s all about prosperity and how to achieve it. Your Ego is your confidence booster that guides you to success. Listen to your Ego. Everyone has an ego.

Frankly just that description makes me never want to be forced to watch an episode of this channel, but out of commitment to this blog I tried to watch the latest episode on the site ‘Malibu U Episode 2′ – and I still regret it. The things I endure for my readers. Anyway, if you do want to watch it, as usual you can subscribe online or on your TiVo via Find Programs & Downloads -> Download TV, Movies, & Web Video -> Browse Other Videos -> All -> Ego TV on Veoh.

SomaGirls TV doesn’t sound like a big improvement:

The latest Celebrity news, Make-up styles, and fashion trends.

Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be subscribing to that one either. If you want to, wait for it, you can subscribe online or on your TiVo via Find Programs & Downloads -> Download TV, Movies, & Web Video -> Browse Other Videos -> All -> SomaGirls TV on Veoh.

While I’m talking about TiVoCast, what’s happened to some of the older channels? For example, GeekBrief.TV hasn’t updated since early July. And The Watcher on TiVo is decent enough – but is there some major delay? The last episode, which I received just days ago, was talking about ‘upcoming’ season premiers for returning shows – which were returning in early-to-mid July. Not so useful to be told not to miss a premier when it aired last month.

And yet still no Tekzilla.

    Sorry you didn’t care for these two channels!

    We’re not receiving updates of GeekBrief.TV from Mevio (formerly PodCast). More news soon.

    The Watcher has some older episodes to start, but new material (such as their Olympics episode) is already published.

    Well, admittedly these aren’t the first TiVoCast channels I took a pass on. I really have no interest in most of the ‘lifestyle’ stuff like LX.TV or the ‘crafting’ stuff like Threadbanger either. I just have a special level of disdain for ‘celebrity news’ and its ilk and that Malibu U. was either terrible ‘reality’ programming or a terrible spoof thereof. Reality programming is so bad it can be hard to tell the spoofs from the real stuff. ;-)

    I also just realized that Mahalo Daily vanished from the Web Video list at some point. Which explains why I stopped getting them.
