I'm very newbish when it comes to Tivo, i have never owned one or seen one in person for that fact but i have a couple of questions i would like to ask.

I'm a huge college football fan. I want to be able to record the games and then move them to my PC to edit them for highlight videos and stuff to put on youtube. Is this possible?

my second question is do i need to pay for a subscription? i believe they have monthly and lifetime (product lifetime?) or do i need to (or can i) get around the subscription to do what i want to do?

any help is appreciated thanks

EDIT: I should have also mention i would like to do all this in HD :P, so i believe that is Series 3 Tivo?
