lifetime discount

Hi,
I am a soon to be new TiVo customer and was wondering when TiVo usually have discounted lifetime subscriptions. Thanks.

The PLSR code should get $100 off, you can try it online and see if it works without committing to anything. Other than that, I don't think there will be any discounts unless you have subscribed for a couple of years.

Thank you. So no chance for a $99 in the near future? I think I read they had it in July. I just tried promo code and it doesn't work for me.

The $99 lifetime is available at times for series 3 and series 4 TiVos that have been subscribed for a period of time, I think 3 years.

The PLSR promo code doesn't work for tivos that you buy direct from them, only third party retailers like Walmart and best buy.

Adjacent to the original question -- I have a couple of TiVo HD's (!) that I've been paying annually on for, well, forever. They were both about to renew for another year and I finally remembered to call TiVo beforehand to see about going lifetime at a discount. They gave me the $99 deal on both boxes.

Yeah, I got the $99 also, and just by being nice. Heck, even the SCR I got said, "Wow, you've been with us for a while!"
