TiVo Inc. hopes to spur new subscriptions this holiday with a special rebate that will cover most of the cost of the company's 80-hour Series 2 DT (dual-tuner) DVR...while supplies last.
With the special rebate, the 80-hour box, which sells for $249.99 at retail, will go for $69.99. The 180-hour model, meanwhile, will sell for $169.99 after the rebate.
That model retails for $349.99.
But to qualify for the holiday rebate campaign, customers must also activate one of a range of new service commitment packages. TiVo's three-year plan is $12.95 per month, or $299 prepaid, down from $349. The two-year option is $14.95 per month or $299 prepaid, while the one-year option is $19.95 per month, or $199 prepaid.
