I received an email from TiVo offering to upgrade my Tivo to the Roamios at a discounted price along with what appears to be the ability to transfer my existing plan to the Roamio. Has anyone else seen and done this? I was thinking about it, but not sure if I understand it correctly.
I have a TiVo HD XL at the $12.95/mo plan.
I also have a TiVo Premiere XL at the $6.95/mo multi service discount plan.
I really don't want my rates to increase for obvious reasons - so I was thinking of just replacing the HD XL to a Roamio Pro ($499) but I do want to be sure that my $12.95/mo plan will transfer over. When I look at this page (http://support.tivo.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/20
) it seems to indicate that it cannot transfer over - so it seems contrary to the TiVo email I got. Then again the email has a footnote saying it's a limited time promotion so maybe it's an incentive for me to move up. The footnote also makes me wonder if I can still keep my $6.95 msd for the Premier XL.
Sooo, before I contact them I was wondering if any of you experts know if I can upgrade and keep my existing plan rates? (I don't know what I'll do with the HD XL once it's removed. If they'd offer me a cheap lifetime on it maybe I'll keep it and use it for OTA and streaming use for another tv but otherwise...) I won't do this if my rates will need to increase.
Additional edit: Sorry, I noticed the Deals thread below but since I had a question on plan transfer, I wasn't sure if this fit in there. Ooops if it did.
