Unbox on TiVo Giving Away Free Movie


This week’s specials includes a Mexican movie, El Callejon de los Milagros, which can be purchased FREE. Or you can conveniently choose to RENT it for $2.99.  😮  Its not TiVo unless its a … oh, well. 😉

You can find the movie under the Special Deals category right on your TiVo.

Not sure why in the world this movie would be offered as a free bee. Free downloads coould indicate tough going for TiVo on Unbox or just good marketing, but this?

    The movie ‘Inspiracion’ is also free to own: http://www.tivolovers.com/2007/07/27/amazon-unbox-99-sale-and-a-free-movie-download/

    Looks like a goof – but who knows.

    Yes, thanks for that.

    I put Unbox on the shelf a few weeks ago because of their (billing) mistakes. What put it over the top was my account becoming suddenly unlinked to TiVO around the time they started Unbox on TiVo Direct.

    Even if it were related, there is no reason they would have had to unlink for Web site initiated transactions.

    Dirty devil that I am, I am not above clicking the link and downloading these to my PC for free. They’ll be in my library if I ever use Unbox again.

    So why these movies? I’ve answered that for me. Lets just say 1) Salma Hayek, 2) short skirts, hot chicks. 🙂

    It gets more interesting. Looking up these movies in my library (wanted to find download progress, which I could not) I found that the download options do include my TiVoes.

    My S3 is pretty full and I have no time to watch what is on it now, but someday I’ll ship the movies there.

    Too bad I had to waste a license on the PC 😦

    I better check for a couple of $14.99 charges to my CC. 😉
