TiVo is moving towards an On Demand model to make revenue. Here in the States you can buy a movie on Amazon.com and have it delivered to your TiVo.

Wouldn't surprise me in the least that TiVo will partner with someone in Australia to do the same thing.

It gets weirder and weirder. You do need to set up an account with them over the Internet, though, for the EPG. Although you're right, they say it's free.

I couldn't get into the site to read the terms and conditions, because I don't have the TiVo number they ask for. So maybe they are leaving the door open to charge a fee for that Internet account, in the future?
