Technically what you are saying is true. But think about who the target audience of the Multi-Service Discount is, and while new to TiVo users technically can participate, more likely the target audience is… well… long-time TiVo subscribers.

Only TiVo Inc. would know this for sure, but I would guess at least 90% of the people that have taken advantage of the Multi-Service discount to date would be people that had TiVo for at least 6 months. We could get into semantics about what qualifies about long-term, but one can understand that anyone reading an ad would rather be considered part of that ‘long-time’ crowd – hence TiVo's use of it.

Its not the discount on lifetime subs I had hoped for either, but its something!
