TiVo Adds Ads to Paused Programs

And the mildly downward spiral continues. What a bummer.

Part of me may be still trying to justify dumping TiVo for DirecTV’s not-as-pretty-but-mostly-functional (and cheaper) DVR, I’ll admit. (And I’ll admit that the fact that there are occasional ads in the program guide on my DVR is just as annoying.) But I think TiVo is really screwing the pooch here given their enormous goodwill, great brand, and awesome interface.

And they’re still charging up to $13/month. Blah, I say. Blah.
