Quote from: Heinz on March 17, 2014, 04:49:27 PMWe're meeting with Digital Trading Co re the T3 this Wednesday to get a landing on how we can accelerate IceTV integration. The question isn't "if" but "when"!
Quote from: Heinz on April 11, 2014, 08:19:55 PMFollowing 5 weeks of negotiations with Beyonwiz, we could not agree on acceptable commercial terms for the integration of IceTV with the Beyonwiz T3.
Quote from: BikeMike on April 13, 2014, 07:20:56 PM...Not sure why there needs to be a commercial arrangement between ICE and BW; there is a commercial arrangement between ICE and ME to provide this service, I pay for it! I probably will not be renewing when my current subscription expires....
Quote from: BikeMike on April 13, 2014, 08:25:32 PMDo all the other platforms have a commercial arrangement with ICE? What about Windows, Myth TV etc?
Quote from: Heinz on April 11, 2014, 08:19:55 PM3) Treat yourself to an IceTV PVR in October from our online store or in November from the top Australian retailers.
Quote from: BikeMike on April 20, 2014, 10:53:56 AMAs far as I can see, Ice do not offer a cheaper "guide only" subscription? The fee includes remote scheduling of recordings onto my device. IceTV have Beyonwiz to thank for my last 5 years of subscription fees, along with my recommendations to other users. So why can't I continue to use the service with my new Beyonwiz device? There is no other compelling reason to use their service, so if it's not going to be enabled for the T3 I will be cancelling and no longer recommending them.
Quote from: Paul55 on April 20, 2014, 01:58:07 PMYou don't need to be a subscriber to access the IceTV EPG data over the web - just to get it onto your device.IceTV would need to develop firmware and are entitled to some recompense for their work and intellectual property - the question I ask is how much. To the layman, there wouldn't seem to be a case for it costing Beyonwiz significantly more than the DP series licence. We also don't know how hard a line Beyonwiz took.As for both Beyonwiz and the user paying IceTV, it's a bit like newspaper classifieds - both the seller and buyer need to pay the newspaper. Maybe not a great example, but it shows that 2 parties can be charged by a third party to bring them together.
Quote from: prl on April 20, 2014, 06:14:14 PMI'm not sure that either Heinz or Jai (from Beyonwiz) owe us any explanation of what happened in private commercial negotiations.
