Simple.TV calling 'er done ...
Saw the news today that Simple.TV is officially calling it done. (Although you couldn't tell it by their web page).
The thing that stuck out to me is how much it must burn them that Tablo is still kickin'. When they announced their recommendation of where anybody still using the simple.tv service should go ... their recommendation was TiVo. It surprised me a little since Tablo is basically the same kind of setup as Simple. If their customers were happy with the simple.tv model, I thought it would make sense to point them to Tablo. But I imagine it must sting that Tablo was basically the same model -- but done more reliably. With Tablo still around, and simple.tv closing up shop -- they must have just not been able to bring themselves to point them in that direction. :-)
There was mention that Simple.TV subscribers were being emailed a discount offer for the TiVo Roamio OTA. I'm curious if any Simple.TV subscribers who got the email would care to divulge what the discount offer is?
