I think I'm going to switch from Dish Network to DirectTV.
I'm waiting to here if they are going to have any special promotions for 3 rooms with 1 being an HD Tivo setup.

My Dish Network system is a Legacy so it won't support their PVR921. They want hundreds to upgrade the system. To me that's a rip because I only had the system for less than a year.

So, has anyone heard of a promotion in the works for HD Tivo for new subscribers?

Thanks,
JedK

Not yet. I am a E* subcriber myself but will be switching as soon at
the HDtivo comes out and I can get one. Have a SAtivo now and can't
do without it. Only thing I hope for is there won't be a three or four
month backlog when they do come out. Oh well.

There will not be any promos from a long time, they will trouble enough filling the orders already placed and getting HD Tivos in-stock at stores like BB and CC. don't hold you hopes up, it may be as long as a few years before you see any promos on this unit from DirecTV, but you may be able to get one online. you never know, but it will not be for much off.

Is this your opinion, or do you know this for a fact?

YES

There are 5 Promos going on right now for new subs.

Normaly you can only get ONE promo on ONE Hardware item, you can get Two doing this.

1. Order from ValueElectronics.com Get the SD Tivo and Three Receivers for $39

2. Also tell VE you are a memeber of the TivoCommunity and AVS forums and PRE-ORDER the new HD Tivo for $100 off making it $899.

3. When you activate your Subscription ask for the Double Deal Price so You get $10 off your bill each month for 6 Months.

4. Then ask them to review the cost of the plan you picked, and mentioned that the price went up (I did on March 1st). You will then get a $2 a month discount for One year. Ask for Price Protection (thats what shows up on there screen and your bill).

5. If you want to do a Self install order the $50 kit from VE. Mail you first bill to them after its all installed and activated and they will credit your Visa $100. (this means you make money on the SD Tivo).

Thats 5 Discounts. I shopped on the Internet and stores for Months looking for the best deal. Trust me, this is it.

the only problems is that everything except for #2 has to do with SD tivo, but the others may work with HD Tivo? just as I said, online is the only way to get discounts on the unit itself.

Looking back at history gives me the indication of this fact, and I have read reports that there will be no discounts from DirecTV on this unit for a long time, just as Dish has done with 921, inless D* comes out with a HDTV in a box deal, which I don't see them doing.
