TiVo Series 3 Ship Info
Even before launch, the TiVo Series 3 is quickly becoming the flagship model with the most features, including support for dual HDTV tuners and external storage. It should then come as little surprise that new retail information places the Series 3 at the very top of the TiVo product lineup in terms of price. An early entry into the Best Buy retail SKU system lists the new model as available for $799 - well above the $469 for the current 180-hour Series 2 with dual standard-definition tuners and a 3-year plan. However, it should also arrive soon enough that those who can justify the price will not have long to wait. The same Best Buy system also lists the Series 3 as in stock for September 17th, just a few weeks away. Though retail stocking systems are not always reliable sources of information, prior news of the Series 3's beta testing phase makes a launch feasible in three weeks' time.
