Series 3 TiVo boxes will NOT get the Premiere software

Sorry, TiVo owners. Your TiVo HD and HD XL boxes will not be getting the swanky new software TiVo announced today according to an official TiVo spokeswomen we just asked. It probably has something to do with the fact that the Premiere hardware is the same as the current generation and therefore current owners would have little reason to upgrade to the new models.

This isn’t very customer focused, TiVo. Expect a lot of flack for this decision. Here’s hoping an enterprising hacker will figure out a work-around so your current loyal customers can enjoy the new interface, too. After all, we do give you $12.95 a month anyway. A little appreciation and respect would be nice.
