TiVo News#96: Snow-white remotes & Misfit toys

TiVo newsletter…

TiVo Subscriber Newsletter | Volume

Letter from the Editor

This will be super-short and to the holiday point, because you’re busy and I have plenty of time to talk TiVo in 2007. Plus, who couldn’t use some shopping suggestions to help check those names off the list right about now:

  • For the Twice as Nice: Save $180 instantly when you buy the 80-hour TiVo® Series2™ DT DVR with a TiVo service gift card.
  • For the Thrice as Nice: For guaranteed glee, get the world’s only THX®-certified DVR, the TiVo® Series3™ HD box.
  • For the Practically Perfect: Save an extra (and instant) 10% off this TiVo gift package which also includes a TiVo wireless adapter and the new TiVoGlo premium remote.

And just to be icicle-clear, when you buy any TiVo® box with service, you don’t want to glaze over this great, limited–time offer: Get 3 years of TiVo service for the price of 2 when you buy the $299 TiVo Service Gift Card. Now, that’s the TiVo I’m talkin’ ’bout.

Please accept our warmest wishes for a holiday season filled with joy, love, and unforgettable entertainment (both in life and TV). We love our subscribers.

P.S. I wouldn’t be my best TiVo Elf if I didn’t tell you that the TiVoGlo premium remote is now available in (snow) white! With its backlit keys and learning capabilities, it’s sure to be the brightest stocking stuffer you’ll find anywhere near Santa’s sleigh this year (sorry, Rudolph).

TiVo Tip: Get Very Merry TV

Last chance to stuff your TiVo box with care(fully) picked seasonal shows. (If you missed Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys again this year, don’t blame us.) TiVo Holiday Guru Guides include everything from Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifles to elves that really wanted to be dentists to marvelous Menorahs to making nutcrackers to cracking Da Vinci codes, whew! The holidays are exhausting.

COMING SOON! Start revving those TiVo remotes… If you’re broadband-connected, TiVo Guru Guides are coming soon to a TiVo box near you! Think of them as mini-TV guides from experts “in-the-know” especially for people who only want the best in television.
