Cancel Service But Still Watch Recorded Shows?

I found a thread from 9 years ago but I wanted to find out if it is still true.

Without service, can I still watch recorded shows?

If I get the service for say 6 months and fill up a Tivo Roamio (that I own) and then cancel the service can I then go back and pick and choose what shows that I want to watch without any problems without having any service? TIA.

Yes you can watch the shows on the Tivo forever with or without service

Yep.

well I vaguely remember that if you make the mistake of starting guided setup with an unsubscribed TiVo you can get stuck where you can't continue without a subscription and can't back out.


But barring user error, or failing hardware, an unsubscribed TiVo will let you play back your previously recorded content.
