TiVo institutes 1 year service contracts

It looks like TiVo is forcing every new customer to get the 1 year service contract after September 6, and is also going to charge people $150 for an early cancellation, either by the customer or TiVo (appearantly they can cancel your contract without too much trouble).

They are going to charge you if they cancel your subscription? Answers my question about getting one. I guess I will be building an HTPC afterall!
I can not believe there's not a way to use a TiVo without paying for the service. You would think someone whould have come up with a better way.
