    Most of the ads I see for TiVo Premiere at $99 (Best Buy, for example) require a one-year service contract. So figuring $99 for the TiVo plus tax, and $120 for the first year, someone is shelling out $230 immediately. This compares to the normal monthly of $12.95 which gives you the option to stop anytime. Couple that with the fact that the cablecard in the Premiere can be a royal pain, especially if you use Comcast which hates TiVo because it competes with their own DVR, and it doesn’t look like such a great bargain.

    Ush! I just noticed that the “special” one-year service contract is for $19.99 a month, not the old $120 for the year, so it’s $240 plus the $99.99 TiVo Premiere plus tax. Jump on in, folks, the water’s fine and the sharks are swimming in circles.
