Cableco branded TiVo?

I was in a thrift store (Goodwill Computerworks of Austin) and saw a TiVo Premiere, 750 GB for $40.

That's a pretty good price I think (as long as it's working). The only problem is that it was branded with "Suddenlink", a cable company in Austin. I mean really branded - the logo was embedded into the front fascia.

There were no stickers on the unit that said "PROPERTY OF CABLE COMPANY, FBI VANS WILL EMERGE IF STOLEN", etc, etc, but I decided to pass up on it anyway. It did have a barcode on the bottom that looked like it might be some kind of an asset tag.

My question is, are there Cableco's leasing these things or what?

Yes, there are.

I have purchased three premieres for $25 or less each from Craigslist. So, that was not that much of a deal other than it had a slightly harder hard drive than stock.
