SkyCable demos TiVo-style PVR System
Earlier this week, SkyCable announced they will be offering a “TiVo box” style unit into their system to complement the HD programming they provide to customers.
The PVR (personal video recorder) give you the ability to pause live TV, instantly replay scenes just watched
while continuing to record.
In short, this is our very own local version of the popular TiVo service in the US.
The PVR comes in a box installed along the cable connection. It is supposed to have a built-in HDD but we’re not told how much the capacity is.
Reps from SkyCable could not say how much this service is going to be once it is commercially released on first quarter of next year. Hopefully, the monthly rent of the PVR isn’t more than your cable subscription.
How about we give SkyCable some suggestions? How much should the monthly rent of the PVR be? What’s a tolerable price for you — Php199, Php249, Php299? More? Less?
