I agree it's a fair price for what they offer. It's not that I object to the $20/year if I made full use of the service. It's that I object to $20/year for a service I would hardly ever use. My lineup contains two stations and I have one weekly show scheduled. Every once in a while I'll record something else, but increasingly I'm turning to other sources (library loans of DVD TV seasons, for example) for TV content. So, rather than spend that $20 every year, as trifling an amount as it is, it makes more sense to me to find an alternative. (Manual scheduling? Screen scraping? Just stop recording shows altogether because it's no longer worth the bother? I haven't yet decided.)
