Like I've stated in the forums before, if you find the very low cost of Schedules Direct too high, use manual recording instead and don't complain about why they are not using ads.gryphon68 wrote:Any chance of incorporating some advertising into the applications using SD to help offset the subscription costs.
In Myth for instance, an ad banner at the top of the Schedule Guide would be fairly non-invasive, also at the top of the guide data when viewing on MythWeb. In either case the user could click on the ad for more info. Ads should be kept entertainment related (Movies, Music, TV) if at all possible or possibly related to program that is currently highlighted.
Any thoughts on the merits or problems with the basic idea?
Besides that your model would not likely be legal because Schedules Direct is a non-profit.
Quite frankly anyone who can't afford the ultra low price of this service should be spending time looking for a job or a better job and not watching TV in the first place.
