Dish Ordered to Pay TiVo $192 Million

A federal court ordered Dish Network and EchoStar to pay TiVo $192.7 million in damages and interest after the court ruled Dish must stop using a digital video recording service that infringes on a TiVo patent, Bloomberg News reports.

Even though Dish had said it had made changes to the product, U.S. Judge David Folsom said in an order that the new products were the same as the prior version.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
