Yes, at least 6 years ago TiVo raised prices but grandfathered in folks that had monthly service before then and said they wouldn't raise prices on those contracts. Many of those folks kept their $6.99 monthly deals far longer than they really should have, since it was so cheap (I know I did! The 6 years * $84 per year I paid is much more expensive than if I had bought lifetime back then!)
