Yes, the Toshibas have TiVo Basic service. So, if you transfer your Lifetime service to a new S3 (before 12/31/06) you'll still have a year of TiVo Plus service for free on the Toshiba. After that, it will revert back to month-to-month, at which time you can cancel the service and it will downgrade to TiVo Basic, which is free. Keep in mind, though, that TiVo Basic only gives you three days of Guide data, no Season Passes, no WishList, no internet apps, Music & Photos, etc. It's basically just a somewhat smarter digital VCR.
