And who won't charge a fee per month for the equipment? I don think Tivo offers the lifetime plan anymore.


They do. I bought two of em a few months ago. They raised the price way the heck up though.

Though it's the lifetime of the DVR right?

Yep, but my Sony SD Tivo DVR Series 1 is still going strong. Hard drive is usually what goes out, and I always keep the original Tivo drive/software and copy it to a bigger drive for actual use. If the bigger drive ever fails, I just copy the original to another one.

At various times in the past, TiVo has had special offers to transfer lifetime subscriptions to new devices; it also gets transferred if there's a warranty replacement. I got a Series 1 Sony TiVo in January 2001 and bought a lifetime subscription with it -- that subscription has been transferred four or five times, and is currently active on an HD TiVo that my father uses with FiOS.

Ok So Those receivers don't become mine then? I was thinking after paying for them for 2 years they were now mine and that I would only have to pay DirecTv for the programming. So I'm basically still going to have to pay $6 a month for each receiver I have in Use? Man I was hoping to start saving those $6 payments a month on each of my receivers. Guess I'll still have a little bit higher bill.


I find it hard to believe that you've been a member of the forum for more than 8 years, with nearly 1,500 posts, and yet you are unaware of this basic information. Oh well.
