Get a free TiVo Stream with purchase of a base Roamio

Thanks Dave!

https://twitter.com/davezatz/status/369859923628130304



This is a fantastic deal, should quell any complaints from users who wanted integrated Stream support on the base Roamio model.

The code GROUPER doesn't work on the site. I am on the phone right now (on hold.)

A twitter employee did respond to the Twitter posting, so the code should be real.

The code should be valid. It's part of the TiVo/Grouper initiative. Check out their site and scroll to the bottom: http://tivogrouper.com/

If true, it would take some of the sting out of no streaming in the OTA box.

Yes, review the footer of the page @ http://tivogrouper.com/

"*TiVo Stream $130 discount applied at checkout on the bundled purchase of a TiVo Roamio and Stream. While supplies last, expires December 31, 2013. TiVo reserves the right to terminate this promotion without notice."

still on hold with Tivo to get this added to my order

Tivo should just give early adopter Roamio purchasers a coupon for a free stream.

Agreed, maybe just charge for shipping. It would really help people on the fence that desire the streaming of Roamio Plus not found with the base Roamio.

After 40 minutes on the phone they didn't know if they code is valid. They said they would call me back. I am also emailing Margret at tivo since she responded to the thread. Maybe she will know more.... I really want that free Stream device

Now I just have to wait 4 days for my roamio to be delivered.

Should just cancel my direct order and get next day on amazon, will save $10 (tax) but could lose that free stream promotion.

Just ordered one and this is how it showed for me...

A lot better than the $800 S3 that is in my order history.

They had to cancel the order I made at 7 AM first thing this morning and reordered for me with this promo. Then they for some reason added a $25 HDMI cable to my new order which I didn't ask for and now need to remove....

So glad I saw this promo. I bought the Roamio Plus just so that I could get streaming and built in MoCA. I didn't need the bigger hard drive or extra tuners so it is much better for me to get the cheap model with the free Stream and just run ethernet to my TiVo Mini.

They gave me a different story. Said they can't cancel orders unless it's within 15 minutes of the order being placed. They placed for me a 2nd order for a Stream using the promo and the promise they'll credit the 49.99 + shipping when I call back after receiving the shipment.

They canceled my order after 3-4 hours had passed when I called since I could order from Amazon.com and not pay tax.

Just curious. I already own a TiVo Stream. So am I better off going for a better model or get the basic and resell the stream. Are they worth anything??

A quick search of eBay/Craigslist shows that they fetch around $70-80 used

Thats not right. I placed my initial order last night 13 hours ago and they canceled it and reordered for me a Roamio + Stream for the same price.

Looks like you can use the code with just the base Roamio and get $50 off. I just did that (since I already have a Stream) to replace my OTA box.

They are technically and functionality identical. If you're getting a Roamio Plus or Pro, the Stream is integrated. If you are getting the base model Roamio, you need the Stream to provide this functionality. You will not see any functional difference.

I also have a stream in my account.
I used the code and got $50 off the base Roamio without an additional stream.
