Grande now offers Tivo
Grande is now offering the Tivo Premiere DVR to their Midland-Odessa customers for $12.99 over the top of a current receiver. You must have a Grande Internet package with at least 8Mbps service - one step up from the basic Grande internet service - and you can see the Grande Bundle prices here.*
I'm a big fan of DVRs and think the Tivo Premiere is the best DVR available. If you're currently using a non-Tivo DVR I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the Tivo user interface and if you're properly geeky, the additional features offered by the Tivo Desktop software and the iPad app will likely make you a fan-for-life. A second Tivo Premiere (another $14.99 per month) also means Mult-Room Viewing is in play.
Obviously I'm a Tivo fan-boy but I realize a Tivo, or any other DVR, is a totally unneccessary expense to some people. I doubt though that those people would even be reading this.
*Bundle prices apply to the first year only and increase $10 per month after the first year and another $10 per month after the second year.
