Are You an RCN Cable Customer? You Could Test the TiVo Premiere Q/Elite & Preview

TiVo Premiere Elite TiVo’s new quad-tuner DVR was initially announced as the Premire Q for MSOs, and later as the Premiere Elite for retail, and honestly I’m not sure if the MSO model is still the ‘Q’ or if they’ll just go with friendlier ‘Elite’ moniker for both. But that’s not important.

What is important is that RCN is looking for five customers to test both the Premiere Q and the non-DVR Preview box. Jason Nealis, RCN’s Sr. Director, Video Product and Video Operations, posted in the forums at DSL Reports:

I need 1 customer. from DC , PA, MA, NY AND IL to get help with looking / testing and getting a feel for the new 4 Tuner Tivo (quad) and the new NON DVR TiVo Preview… SO…

I’m going to do a lottery / ping pong ball draft…

In order to qualify, you need to have

(2) TV’S .. HONESTLY I NEED THE BOTH TO BE HD if possible, you must have at least 1 HD!



yes, btw you need to have RCN TV and internet.


PM / EMAIL me your :

and market (DC / PA / NY / MA / IL)
Email Address


I will collect these until 1159PM EST on Friday 9/2

then on our about 9/4 or 9/5 we will select 1 customer from each market to test these proposed BUNDLE of the TIVO Q and a TIVO PREVIEW… We may even do a live video selection lol
Our at the very least Internet Chat room …

Jason’s a great guy, we worked together a bit earlier in our careers, back around ’96-’97.

So if you’re an RCN customer in DC , PA, MA, NY or IL and you have two TVs (at least one HD), you have a shot at beta testing the Premiere Q and Preview. (And if you wanted to write up a blog post for Gizmo Lovers I think we could work something out. ;-) )

Good luck!
