They don't want to. The cable boxes are shit that they put out because people heard the name "Tivo" and thought it was supposed to be neat. Most people don't know what a DVR does or what it should be used for. I'd bet a clean 40-60% of cable DVR customers don't even record shows to watch, they just treat the box like a standard box.

If you've been following the FCC comments this week about ala carte cable/sat programming, you'll see all these network/cable/sat spokesmen coming out whining about this stuff again. God forbid customers actually have a choice to watch what shows or channels they want to watch. And watch it when they have time.
