Get a refurbished TiVo HD and three months of service for $179.99 has refurbished TiVo HDs on sale for $179.99, including the first three months of service. Shipping is just $5.


One-day one-deal site Woot has refurbished TiVo HD units on sale for $179.99 plus an impossibly fair 5 bucks for shipping. What's more, you can get the first three months of service free by entering coupon code 3FREEHD when you activate the TiVo.

After that, it'll cost you $16.95 $12.95 per month, which is the one and only reason the Cheapskate has never taken the TiVo plunge. No, I'm more of a Windows Media Center man, what with the free program guide and all. But I've poked, prodded, and tested the TiVo HD, and let's be clear: It's the greatest thing since, well, HDTV. Two HD tuners, 30-second commercial skip, support for cable and over-the-air signals... it's DVR nirvana.

Before you buy, however, make sure to read CNET's in-depth TiVo HD review , which lists some important caveats. And remember that this deal comes from Woot, meaning it could sell out at any moment. If you want to bring the goodness that is TiVo HD into your life, act fast!
