Since the submission form seems to lose the direct link here it is -

Why is this cold? I think it's not bad as it's free!
#3
It's not guaranteed that you'll get one - you may be selected is all.

I'm still going for it - heat!
#4
I have signed up so will wait and see if I get one! Hot from me as nothing to lose! Thx!
#5
One hell of a questionaire to fill in - not for me
#6
Probably because you only get one if MS accept you into the trial

Possibly because it's not really a deal (or even an offer, for that matter) - it's a prize in a competition. From the lonk:
Just fill out the following survey before the offer ends on 23/09/2009. If you're selected, we'll send you a free TV Tuner
So they're not saying how many of these they're giving away (is it 2 or is it a million? ) so you can't say iif it's worth while going to the effort of filling in their form. Plus, no-one really trusts Microsoft with their information, anyway.

Wish I didnt bother,

No offence to the OP

Even if you do get selected, you prob have to complete loads of marketing questionaires for them .

Not really worth it for a tv tuner
