TiVo will hand out its digital video recorders for free tomorrow at its corporate headquarters in Silicon Valley, the company promised on its website and in full page advertisements in newspapers in the Silicon Valley area.
Consumers currently subscribing to the local cable monopolist Comcast have to drive by TiVo's office in Alviso and donate a toy or piece of clothing for charity. Customers still need to pay the monthly $ 12.95 subscription fee, but save about $ 100 by getting the hardware for free.
The giveaway is a PR stunt, following reports last week that Comcast has delayed the introduction of its digital video recorder in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The SV Sleuth won't be able to make the giveaway unfortunately, but has high hopes that he will find satellite TV with a TiVo included under this year's Christmas tree.
