Six days and 140 posts later and they're still whining about TVMail.
I checked one DVR (which I have owned for several years) and I have never looked at TVMail before on and found a total of 4 messages. I can live with that..
I have no idea. But it is a mechanism of information delivery so I can't blame them for using it. When trying to get information out to the masses, you use multiple devices and get who you can how you can. The mechanism is so simple, if you get 1% of the customers, it is worth it.
Like mass mailings, informercials or telemarketers. I don't know personally anyone who they work on but they must or they wouldn't happen. But they are all so cheap that any return is worth it.
TVMail is like regular mail.
It may have some information you are interested in...it may have some "junk" mail.
...and like regular mail...you can pick what you want to read...and discard the rest.
Seems simple enough...even a caveman can do it.
I'd MUCH rather have them use TVMail for communications than inserting the information in the guide like they were doing before. That was annoying. Having it all in one place that I can quickly go through or even ignore is the right way for these types of messages. "-" "-" is your friend.
Who is forcing you to read this thread?
Agree. TVMail is very annoying and like all other advertising/marketing offered it needs to have the ability to opt out. Period. Those that want it opt-in those that don't opt-out.
That's one of your best posts to date.
No one. It seems to me MysteryMan is just pondering the situation.
I have 9 receivers (and a large monthly bill to match but that's not important)...
I do get a bit tired of having the TVmail on every freakin receiver... Would love to be able to opt all but one or two out of receiving it.
Simple, several key receivers that can spew forth whatever information is sent down while the rest remain clear.
Seriously, I would be more apt to read it then rather than just delete on sight.

Now if that obnoxious, boisterous, loud, and stupid AOL "You've Got Mail" announcement was used - I'd be all over pulling out wires. :lol:
I just Love Hearing That Sound As It Tells Me I Am Loved And Someone Is Sending Me Their Love!!!
Except that it is not usually MARKETING.
It aligns well to a flushing sound that tells you they're sending something else other than love.
Maybe its the same person that is forcing subscribers who are annoyed by TV Mail, to go to the message screen and read or delete them, instead of just ignoring them?
I hope you're kidding. It's not even close to the same thing.
I never thought I'd see this, but I just saw a commercial for DirecTV, and half of it was dedicated to TVMail. The other half was the active button.
I am kidding, except for the guy with the annoying green light. I really don't understand why someone can't just ignore the mail icon. Just like MysteryMan could ignore this thread, but he comes here to read it.
I thought this thread was a joke at first. I can't believe that people actually let that little envelope icon bother them so much.
USA! USA! USA!
