    BB has this unit in store and online for $99.99. I asked and was told there was no required rebate or activation. I bought a Hughes unit with similar specs there 6 mos ago for $249.99, so I'm not sure why the price is so low. Once you've gone Tivo, it's hard to go back to regular tv...

    The price was lowered a couple of weeks ago actually and different chains are getting on board slowly. After 10/17, I believe that all 35 hour Directivo's will be $99 for new and existing customers. CC has had them at $99 for a couple of weeks ($49 with the now expired rebate).

    Is this price good for existing DirectTV customers?

    A lot of existing customers have reported over at Tivo Community about getting the $99 BB price. Actually, some online vendors have dropped the new customer prices down to $49.

    I answered your splitting question here.

    Do I need to make a contract if I buy this. I prefer to live month to month with things such as these.
    EDIT: also is there anyway to get arround needing a credit card. I recently put all of mine in the freezer and don't feel like thawing them [​IMG]

    Bill, we just hooked up our Tivo service yesterday w/ DirecTv & they gave us the option of credit card or monthly bill in the mail. Not sure if it's different with a stand-alone Tivo.

    And BTW we like it a lot so far! It's definitely a must-have item in my opinion.

    Now I'm just waiting for the high-def DirecTV video recorder with Tivo to come out. I think I've learned my lesson though...I'm going to wait 6 months or so for the price to drop! (we also paid $250 for our Tivo a couple of months ago)
