TiVo giveaway has lump of coal for Comcast – FREE TIVOS THIS FRIDAY AT TIVO HQ!

For TiVo, it’s better to give than receive–especially when it involves poking a little fun at a competitor.

The digital video recorder company on Friday will give away 40GB Series 2 recorders to Comcast customers who bring their cable bill and a gift for The Family Giving Tree charity to TiVo headquarters in Alviso, Calif. The giveaway will last from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., or until they run out of units, and will be limited to one recorder per household.

Service fees are not included the giveaway, which is only for first-time TiVo owners.

    That is awesome. :) I wish I knew someone who didn’t already have TiVo to take advantage of it.

    Damn! HQ is on my way back to Oakland airport (I leave the Bay Area on Friday), but I’m no longer a Comcast customer.

    And I wouldn’t be a first-time TiVo owner anyway.

    But yeah… drove past there on 237 this evening and was amused by the giant Tivo banner.

    I passed this along to my co-worker and she now has a free TiVo! She had her son wait in line since 9:00 this morning. :)
