NY Times has an interesting article on the trend of homebrew PVRs and
cableboxes as well as the use of P2P filesharing tools to access TV shows.
The trend to use MythTV or
bittorrent is getting big enough that TV
studios fear to loose revenues from their TV DVD collections. Apparently TV
studios try to get ahead of the trend early adopters lay-out and are working on
offering legal downloads of their offering. This would be a great service and I
would pay for it. To search and find a descend copy of a TV show in time
on the net actually costs time. I hope Comedy Central starts soon to offer the
Daily Show download subscription.
