TiVo Premiere Hits Best Buy on March 28th

The new TiVo units are reportedly at Best Buy stores now and ready to hit shelves just over a week from now.

Can’t wait until April to get your hands on the new TiVo? Then you’re in luck. According to one Best Buy employee, they’re in stock and ready for their March 28th release date, just a bit ahead of the early April ETA that TiVo announced.

Though the Premiere doesn’t appear to be the second coming that TiVo needed, it’s still an impressive piece of recording hardware and a nice upgrade for current TiVo users. Not only do they have nice big hard drives, but they’ve got the added bonus of a slick new user interface.

The TiVo Premiere XL is especially nice, with a full terabyte of hard drive space and THX certified sound and video. At $499, plus a subscription fee, it may not be everyone’s first choice. For those looking to spend a bit less, the $299 Premiere offers a 320GB drive, with the same fast performance.
