Buying a Tivo for my parents

my folks have decided to get a tivo with OTA. I"m looking at the base S5 with lifetime.

I don't see why i couldn't buy it under my account & get the multi service discount for a total of $600. Activate it at my home & do the first service update/set up so i can get it sorted correctly 'cuz face it- my folks are not the most technically inclined. Then give it to my folks.

is there any reason why this isn't ok? Billing wise or technical wise?

I have my parents TiVo under my account. No issues. And since it's lifetime, you can always (later) let them call in and set up their own account w/ TiVo.
