Setpal is no more!

Dunno if this has already been mentioned but it seems Setpal/Novapal are no more!

So no hope of an extended EPG, no updates and no removal of adverts


"Hello,

Thank you for your email. As can be seen on the Companies House website,
NovaPal Trading Ltd is indeed in administration.

Ovus is an entirely separate company, which was formed by engineers that
had been made redundant by NovaPal. For a while, we had a contract with
NovaPal to maintain the SetPal software (including OADs), but this was
stopped earlier this year. I know of no plans for further OADs to be
broadcast."

..on a similar note, Companies House now records the status of "Tivo Ltd" as "Dormant".

Why the recent change of status?

Dormant companies don't have to make an annual return.

Just to correct the position re dormant companies. Dormant companies do have to have to make annual returns and file an annual report & accounts. However, they do not need to have those accounts audited. To qualify as dormant, you must not have traded in the last 12 months.

The company Tivo Ltd cannot be the UK subsidiary of Tivo inc as it was only incorporated in September 2004 i.e. after Tivo withdrew from the UK market.

Unless it was set up in 2004 by TiVo Inc purely to protect the "Tivo Ltd" name? That'd explain why it is a non trading company!

TiVo obviously does trade in the UK. What company do they use if not Tivo Ltd?
