TiVo Subscriber Newsletter | Volume
Letter from the Editor

Happy February! I hope you’re in the mood for some great entertainment because TiVo subscribers have a lot to love about the shortest month of the year. So, be still your beating heart… We’ll count the ways together in this Valentine’s edition of the newsletter.

From getting all the romantic movies you can take to playing love songs for your sweetie to sweet ideas on seducing your friends, lovers, and family to one red-hot offer that includes an additional remote, ’tis the season to fall in love all over again with the amazing TiVo service.

Big red roses & Lil’ black dresses,

P.S. And the winner will be…? I’d be loveless if I didn’t remind you that my favorite TV film festival, Turner Classic Movies signature 13th annual
31 Days of Oscar, commences today, Feb. 1. This year’s line-up could be the best one ever with over 350 films featuring Oscar nominees and winners from the incredible TCM library (We made it easy to automatically record the romantic bests by browsing our Valentine’s Guru Guides.). Also enter our 31 Days of Oscar sweepstakes with TCM which will send one lucky winner (+1) to Los Angeles for the 80th Annual Academy Awards red-carpet festivities in 2008. The sweepstakes Grand Prize winner, along with 30 First Prize winners, will each also score a TiVo box with a service subscription. Go to tcm.com/31dayssweeptakes today to enter!

TiVo Tip: Be a PlayerIf your TiVo box is connected to your home network, set a romantic mood using the TiVo Digital Music Player or Live365 Internet radio.

  • From Music, Photos, Products, & More, select Live365, then Listen to Stations.
  • Choose from Blues, Easy listening (“The Lonely Lounge, Slow.fm” promises the best love songs!), Oldies, Jazz (How ’bout a Bossa Nova Breakfast?), Latin, or R&B.

Alternatively, you can stream your favorite Barry White song from your own music library from your PC or Mac. Not connected? It’s time, dearie. Learn how.

P.S. Cupid says: Heed more TiVo Valentine’s tips.

Married to the Mob Scene?

“My wife was so worried that the paparazzi would ruin the wedding party that she kept the details of the wedding secret from everyone, including me.” – David E. Kelley to reporters, telling reporters he had nothing to do with putting together his 1993 wedding ceremony to Michelle Pfeiffer. Kelley’s new upcoming romantic comedy about wedding planners will appear on News Corp.’s Fox network sometime this spring.

Kelley, 50, is the creator and executive producer of the ABC-TV series “Boston Legal.” Pfeiffer, 48, has been nominated for Oscars for her roles in “Love Field,” “The Fabulous Baker Boys” and “Dangerous Liaisons.” (Create an Actor WishList�® search for Pfeiffer, Michelle.)
