Podshow On Tivo

Update: Two days later, TechCrunch picks up this story (with a link to me) and it ends up on Techmeme. Maybe by linking to the ‘Crunch, I’ll get linked on the ‘Meme. Kinda sad if you think about it.

Am I the only one that finds it ironic that I’d find out this information from an audio-only version of Geekbrief? Get better Cali, and thanks for not bringing rubella to PME.

Podshow (video) content is now available on Tivo.

Smart move. Here’s how to do it (with a Tivo, at least (from their site)).

  • Go to TiVo Central.
  • Go to “Find Programs.”
  • Go to “TiVoCast” (or “Download TV and Movies” on some systems).
  • Choose the program you’d like to receive (PodShow TV, or any of our affiliated shows).
  • Choose “Get Season Pass” from the show menu. It’s that simple!
  • Every new episode will automatically download to your TiVo box, and appear in your “Now Playing List” just like regular television recordings.

I’ve been watching Geekbrief.tv all year on my television and let me tell you something, it’s simply much better on a television set.

I’m guessing since Dvorak’s Cranky Geeks show has been doing this for awhile, he introduced the right people accordingly.

I just wish Tivo had better penetration.

The more people watching video Podcasts on their television, the better.

    I was very disappointed to find out the show I co-created and co-produce for the Podshow Network was being passed over by Tivo. “Port City PD” was originally pitched with all of the rest of the shows now currently showing up on Podshow’s Tivo page, but Tivo is only accepting content, get this podcasters…that are rated “G” or “PG” only due to the FCC.

    First let me say that our show pushes the limits, but we do nothing you wouldn’t see on Network television. Shows like “The Sheild” and “CSI” are more violent and gruesome than our show. We are guilty of dropping the “F-Bomb” from time to time, but that’s all. Remember in 1993 when “NYPD Blue” showed bare breasts in the pilot episode, and Dennis Franz’s butt in the shower. We don’t even come close, unless you count the rated “G” Christian Coalition, I mean Cali Lewis, describing our show on “Geek Brief” in her mind as “Kinda reminds me of a porno”. I guess she has never watched shows like “The Sheild”, “NYPD Blue”, “CSI”, “24”, because they all remind me or porno…….what a joke.

    The cast and crew have worked so hard for almost two years to bring the first full production series that in my mind crushes the likes of “Lonelygirl15″ to the internet. Our show is not just sitting in front of a camera like a news anchor and reading from other people’s bloggs. Now that we are in season two filming in “HD” we are being passed over for now. By the way, “Port City PD” Season 2 looks great on a HD Tv or any Tv for that matter. Tivo’s loss for now.

    So be excited for Podshow and the Tivo venture, but expect documentaries and news type shows for your entertainment. So to all podcasters out there make sure you censor yourselves if you want to be on Tivo.

    This doesn’t sound like “Independent Media” to me.

    Your show is well put together. It is an art.

    If Cali Lewis, described your show on “Geek Brief” in her mind as “Kinda reminds me of a porno” is an unprofessional statement.
