Cablevision to test `remote storage' PVRs - PVR Wire

PVR meets on-demand. I kind-of like it.
RS-DVR gives each subscriber 80 GB of programming space -- time enough for about 45 hours of recordings -- and lets them record two programs simultaneously. Cablevision expects to charge less for the new technology than it does for current PVRs, which cost $9.95 a month.

Subscribers can skip commercials with RS-DVR. Cablevision says the technology doesn't violate copyright laws. "Consumers have well-established rights to 'time-shift' television programming by making copies for personal, in-home viewing," the company said in a statement to USA Today. "This new technology merely enables consumers to exercise their time-shifting rights in the same manner as with traditional DVRs, but at less cost."
