I found this at Free Previews: "Starz & Encore will be available for FREE November 21 - 25, 2012 on DirecTV, Verizon, Cox, and other participating providers. As usual, please let us know if your provider is also participating so we can add it to this list."

So it's Encore as well as Starz, and through several providers. This also says it starts the 21st and is available through the 25th. YMMV, I guess.

With the continuous reboots on the older TiVo's this is kind of useless. The reboots, as many as 5-6 per day, has caused much consternation to TiVo owners, and many are leaving DTV due to this problem. Been going on for over 3-weeks now... A even watching a movie with reboots is almost useless.

Solution: Dump overpriced TiVo and use the regular DTV DVR *shocking*

Thanx for the heads up OP!

I did exactly this a few months ago. The DTV DVR is nice. The thing I miss most from my TiVo is using pyTivo (opensource movie decoder) to access my huge library of .MKV movies. I watch a lot on my PC anyway though. It's nice being off TiVo, saving some bucks. The recording interface of the DTV DVR is definitely on par with TiVo IMO.

Easiest way to do this is to hook up a laptop with HDMI to your tv if you want to stream direct to the tv. It is a pain compared to using the TiVo software to do it but you can always get a Boxee, Roku, etc for that part and you would still be saving a ton of money over going back to TiVo

I use the old SD-DVR TiVo's, 8-years old, like a rock. I don't even need HD so the SD TiVos are fine for me. There is no way in hell I would ever use a DTV DVR after my experience with the R-15 (which is boxed up and in my spare bedroom), which was a piece of junk.
