TiVo has a lot going on right now. They are changing the fundamental way they do business and part of that change is by ditching the lifetime subscription option that many TiVo users have opted for. In addition to that they are setting up a few new offerings that don’t require users to purchase the hardware in order to make use of the TiVo software.

I think this will be a good move in the long run and the Series 3 DVR will get more TiVo units into more living rooms.
