Free Tivos!

Via PVRBlog, Tivo is giving away free 40hour Series 2 Tivos to residents of the Bay Area that come to their company headquarters tomorrow (Friday) between 11am to 1pm, armed with a gift to give to The Family Giving Tree charity. To be eligible, you must be a Comcast cable subscriber (you need to bring your latest cable bill) and you must not already be a Tivo user (no free upgrades or second Tivo DVRs).

I really think this was a great idea for Tivo. Not only will it generate a lot of positive buzz on the Internet and in the local press, but it gives Tivo employees a chance to see happy Tivo users face to face. As someone who has worked for consumer products, there is nothing better as an employee than seeing satisfied customers who use the products you've worked long and hard to develop.

Kudos to Tivo!

PS. I wonder if these Tivos qualify for the Tivo Rewards program? If so, don't be afraid to send those referrals to the TVHarmony.com's Prize Pool to share the love!

UPDATE: More info from CNet.
