Tivo goes to subscription only model

Tivo is going to a subscription-only pricing model: the hardware is now "free", and there are no more lifetime service contracts. They're going to make all their money through monthly subscription fees. (You can prepay up to three years for a small price break.)

I really like Tivo--they've got some pretty slick software, and I was thinking of getting a Series 3 Tivo when they eventually comes out. But I'll have to revisit that decision, because this new pricing scheme kind of bugs me.

I love my Tivo. I have a lifetime subscription (which lasts as long as my box lasts) so I really hope my little box lives forever!
