TiVo hints at Premiere launch March 2nd

TiVo to hold event for new DVR next month

TiVo today invited the press to a March 2nd media event in New York for what's likely a new DVR. The teaser only says that "inventing the DVR was just a warmup" and promises more at the gathering. Most observers expect the company to launch the TiVo Premiere, a replacement for the TiVo HD that scraps dial-up and other legacy features but adds in a multi-stream CableCARD slot that can record at least one show in the background while watching another.

The unintentional leak by TiVo of the Premiere has been supported by the company's sell-out of TiVo HDs at its own store, a common sign among electronics makers that it's clearing out stock to make room for new models. What pricing the new model will carry isn't known but is likely to hover near the $250 asking price of the outgoing DVR.
