There was a discussion in the DirecTV forum about whether or not DirecTV would ever go back to TiVo as its DVR service, and cheer posted the following: This rings true - you have to try it or know someone who has it to really know just how good TiVo is, and how intuitive it is, and how it blows the cable-co DVRs out of the water. This may not be an original thought, but ... TiVo should offer a Three-Months-You'll-Love-It-Or-Your-Money-Back-Guarantee, with no service fee for the first three months. Customers would just pas for the equipment, try it out, and either return it for a refund of the equipment outlay if they hate it, or sign up for a service plan if they fall in love with it. Has TiVo ever done any trials like this before? How many more people do you think would be willing to try TiVo if there was no risk attached?
