The link is here on my blog. I'd appreciate my email address being used in the referral field - its for a competition for people who signed up for the beta test.







TiVo.... no ongoing costs. W00t.

Look at the .au site for clues ($699AUD for the box).

I would be VERY surprised to see the basic TiVo box debut > $999 incl GST. Even that is a $100 premium over Aussie at current exchange rates.

What makes you say that? Looking at the new Panasonic PVRs some of them will be cheaper in NZ.

I'd expect about 899/999 NZ$ initially, but who knows what may change in the next 3-4 months.

I note two moderators/reviewers here have been invited... I sense Tivo wanting to get as much promotion on geekzone as possible ;-)
