One of a thousand

Just got a nice surprise A Tivo remote with my name on it. Apparently I'm one of 1000 customers to be given the Tivo. You get the remote in a nice box with your name on and a unique number to enter on a personalised webpage.

When you go on the site the women in the video talks to you personally and shows you your remote with your name on. Very cool. You then fill in a form for installation and have a link for a tivo forum( that dosnt appear to be working yet)

Regards

John.

Impressive. Did you register for TiVo or has this come completely out of the blue?

I've just had a courier deliver one of these as well. I had pre-registered, but had not had any contact with the CEO's office. Now just waiting anxiously for the return phone call!

Thinking outside the box here.

If you pre-registered and havn't had a phone call yet then I can only assume you are getting TiVo for free!? They wouldn't send a personalised remote out of the blue and then expect you to pay £150 whether you want it or not.

Well done VM for treating your top tier customers well
