Popular Mechanics says the TiVo Series 3 DVR is going to be $800. Yep, they sound pretty sure of themselves. So far the price has just been an all-but-confirmed rumor, but if Pop Mech says $800, who are we to argue?
They don’t say anything about the launch date, but we’re still thinking somewhere around an October/November timeframe. As you pony up one month’s rent, remember that this has two HD tuners and can record 35 hours of HD content. That’s a whole season’s worth of 24, plus half a season of Lost. It’s worth it, right?
