Well it arrived, lacking any sort of packaging at all, just the TiVo in a box with all the bits loose.  I only hope it isn't broken inside.
Even screwed up newspaper would have helped a bit.

I think there is a rule about how many times you can make the same joke in one thread.

swalker5872: If I read the thread correctly someone has just purchased a Tivo and sold it to you when its on credit? Bit of a random act and I would be afraid that Tivo would ask for it back when he stops paying for it!


Not quite, Telecom have been giving them away for free if you sign up for 24 months for your phone/broadband services.



Is there any info for this on the Telecom website as i can't find it?

Is it for new customers or anyone who isn't on a contract?

Cheers

From what I read here, it sounds like Telecom shops are able to use them as incentives on an ad-hoc, shop by shop basis.  One person said that they were told there was no deal, one person was able to get one on only a 12 month contract, and others on a 24 month.
So from those accounts and that this isn't mentioned online anywhere, it sounds like the shops are able to use their own discretion as to when they give them away.
