TiVo giving away free TiVos tomorrow

Peter Rojas

Do you live in the Bay Area and want a free TiVo? Tomorrow afternoon TiVo is giving away free 40GB Series 2 digital video recorders between 11am and 1pm to anyone who shows up with their Comcast cable bill and a gift for The Family Giving Tree Charity in hand. The catch? They don't toss in the service fees, which'll set you back either $12.95 a month or $299 for a lifetime subscription. Obviously a diss at the new $9.99 a month digital video recording service Comcast is rolling out in the Bay Area, but you gotta wonder whether TiVo is really hammering their point home by giving away a box that forces people to spend more per month than they would for Comcast's service.
