Offer Terms and Conditions
Tivo® Series3TM HD DVR purchase required by 12/31/2006 and activation of the DVR is required by 01/31/2007. Series3 HD DVR must be purchased through TiVo.com. DVRs purchased through retail channels are not eligible.
Offer good for all subscribers with an existing paid Product Lifetime Service subscription.
Product Lifetime Service may be transferred from an existing box to a TiVo Series3 HD DVR only. This offer is not being extended to transfer Product Lifetime Service to any other product.
All terms and conditions for a 1-year prepaid subscription apply to your old DVR. At the end of 1-year, you will be automatically rolled to then-applicable monthly rate. The 1-year contract is not transferable to another party.
Cancellation of only the 1-year contract on the old DVR while still transferring the Product Lifetime Service to the new Series3 HD DVR will be permitted, but only after 60 days of service for both boxes have elapsed. Cancellations on the 1-year contract will not result in refund of the $199 transfer fee. All other warranty replacement costs still apply to the old DVR.
If you return the box within 30 days of placing the order on the website, you will receive a full refund on any paid transfer fee and hardware cost. The shipping charge for the return is at your expense. Returns outside of 30 days will not be accepted. If the transfer is cancelled within the first 30 days, the Product Lifetime Service will remain on your old DVR.
Both boxes will be activated once this process is complete, but the contract information may take over 60 days to be reflected on the DVR or "Manage My Account".
The TiVo Service Agreement applies to the Series3 HD DVR, along with other terms and conditions listed at www.tivo.com/policies
. In case of any discrepancies between those terms and those listed in this offer, the terms defined in this offer supersede those posted.
