    I tried registering my Premiere and it kicks back the TSN right away, must be only Premieres registered after the promo starts, bummer.

    I was able to register my Premiere that I received today before the page got pulled. Since we already had Hulu+ it added 6 months to our subscription... or says it will within 30 days. I also got an email confirmation that states the redemption period is through 6/2012 so it might be awhile before we actually see Hulu+ on our boxes.

    When I called earlier to cancel service for my 2 TiVo HD boxes, because I have replaced them with Premieres, the rep did his best to talk me into keeping the units online. One of his pitches was that Hulu+ was coming "really soon". Feel free to take that with a grain of salt.

    Woops somebody jump the gun in putting that link live. It should be coming very soon I would think. 6 months free sounds pretty good.

    Yeah, but this popped up on the Hulu site a day or two ago. Previously this link didn't work ... looks like Hulu Plus on the TiVo Premiere is right around the corner.

    HeatherA, FierceDeityLink1, What month did you guys activate your Premieres? Trying to get a handle on how "new" they have to be to get the 6 month promotion. Thanks!

    I'm not so sure this means anything at all. Whatever the reason for the delay (technical, licensing, etc.) it certainly would have no effect on marketing or these silly web pages. That stuff has been completed for months. I think someone jumped the gun and put up some web pages they shouldn't have.

    Well they can't offer Hulu+ until the update rollout completes.... Don't have it yet on my box.

    I think its a little messed up that the 6 month promo only applies to newly activated Premiere units, while those of us that have been enduring the pain that is Premiere for a while get stuck with just a one month trial.. But hey, they are in the business of selling new Tivos, not making existing customers happy..

    so only the people who buy premires recently are worth anything to Tivo, apparently.

    just another reason Tivo will never get my business again

    The Hulu Plus UI is rendered in Flash, which only the Premiere supports. But, yeah, it's safe to assume the bulk of current development work is for the Premiere platform.

    When the page leaked earlier this week, folks were able to register relatively new Premiere. However, the fine print today says only those activated 5/23 or later. It's probably worth trying your TSN.
