Almost two years ago I posted that we were switching to FiOS with TiVo DVRs after 12 years with DirecTV. That thread can be found here: http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/212382-long-time-directv-customer-moving-to-fios-and-tivo/page-1 I thought I would come back and let you guys know how the last two years have gone, as a few posters requested at the time. Our renewal is now a bit over 2 months away (June 6) and so I am now getting the renewal emails from Verizon. Those that warned that the discounts would go away after 2 years are right...instead of a $45/month discount they are now offering $40/month. They did also add a regional sports fee, and raised rates (but not on our tier). Of course, DirecTV raised rates too. Our TiVos are going strong, with several new features added including Skipmode (skip a complete commercial block with one click) and support for additional streaming services. We have never had to call Verizon for any technical support, and we have had zero service outages (we sure don't miss rainfade). While TiVo has introduced a new DVR model (the Bolt) it is more of a lower cost entry model. My Roamio Pros are still the top model. Since we broke even on the cost of the TiVos a few months ago the monthly savings have been pure gravy. We really wish we had done this sooner. To be fair, Verizon is unlikely to add any UHD content anytime soon, and when they do it will likely be PPV, but we don't own any UHD TVs and are unlikely to for several more years. Perhaps the biggest unexpected benefit has been TiVo's support for PLEX. This allows us to download recordings from the DVR (except for HBO and Fox channels which are copy protected) and archive them onto a server. They can then be recalled and played back through the TiVos. We have barely used our Rokus in the past year or more. I'm still lurking here, keeping up to date on the satellite world...I may come back to satellite someday.
