    A Story appeared today on the front page of the Metro, a free paper given out at London underground stations.

    "The BBC hijacks hi-tech videos"

    The BBC has used the latest technology to send viewers unrequested recordings of a foul-mouthed TV show which has struggled in the ratings. Dossa and Joe, an adult comedy littered with expletives , was secretly channelled to thousands of homes using the digital video system TiVo.

    and on the articles goes.

    So the TiVo finally makes the front pages of the british press.. hopefully more people will go out and buy it.

    It's just a shame that the headline is a negative one for many. The thought of spam being sent to your tivo is not good.
