NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN IT USED TO:

TiVo cuts price of DVR to $50 (Sue McAllister, 9/07/05, San Jose Mercury News)

Under the new promotion, customers who purchase a 40-hour digital video recorder from TiVo before Nov. 27 and sign up for a subscription before Jan. 15, 2006 will qualify for a rebate of $150. The rebate drops the cost of the device from a suggested retail price of $199.99 to $49.99.

They'll be free by Christmas.

We're already past that point: At many places, the rebates yield a -$50 cost, which takes care of the first 4 months of service.

Jim - I paid $500 a couple of months ago for the HD receiver with TiVo, and it was worth it....

But it will be $250 by Christmas...
