Think you can’t afford a Father’s Day gift? Can you afford $0? If so, you can snag dear old dad a DVR—a TiVo Premiere, in fact.

The company is currently running a Father’s Day promotion, offering free TiVo Premiere hardware with a 2-year commitment of $19.99 monthly service. As Zatz Not Funny points out, it really only pays for itself after the two years. Didn’t dad teach you to be patient?

TiVo Premiere first started shipping in early 2010, with an MSRP of $299.99. It has 320GB of storage, which can hold about 45 hours of high-def or 400 hours of standard-definition programming. It also provides unlimited access to Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Pandora Internet radio, assuming you have subscriptions to those services.

If you have a couple of bucks, you may want to consider getting dad lifetime TiVo service, which is only $20 more than the total on the 2-year Father’s Day commitment. Either way, you’d better know that dad wants that DVR. TiVo’s early termination fees can go as high as $299.99.

Don’t wait too long to decide which is best for dad (or you!); the promotion ends Thursday, June 9, 2011.
