Time Warner Viewers Can Start Over

remote.jpgFor some reason, cable and satellite companies are trying to squeeze TiVo out of their product lineup. Oh yeah -- probably because most of these companies like money, and want all of it for themselves.

Take Time Warner Cable. Tech Dirt says that the provider passed on TiVo about a year and a half ago, and now they are launching their own service, Start Over.

The service sounds vaguely familiar, allowing viewers to start TV programs over while they are in progress. And, like TiVo, viewers won't be able to skip over commercials; it only allows for a "do over" -- no fast forwarding or skipping. So the advertisers will remain fat and happy, even if you don't.

NBC and its stable of networks, such as Bravo, Sci Fi, USA and others, have signed a deal with Time Warner to participate in the service, as well as future tech opportunities. -- Rachel Cericola
