GSOD on tivoHd- can I buy Roamio and keep 12.95/mnth?

Hi all-

Came home last night to find the green screen of death on my 7 yr old TivoHD. I have the 12.95 month to month. I looked at the Roamio today and on Amazon it's $30 cheaper and I get free 2 day ship. We use the TiVo for the excellent guide and time shift- we don't keep a lot we just watch at our leisure. The TiVo site offers me as an existing subscriber the Roamio for 199 and the 12.99 m to m. If I buy the unit on Amazon can I keep the 12.99 when I call to activate and then cancel my old unit? Thanks!

Danny

You should but call TiVo first and ask. Typically they offer the service transfer from older TiVos to the Roamio with the ones they sell but you will just have to call and ask.

I upgraded from an hd to Roamio and kept my $9.95 plan, in fact I have it for sale too as I upgraded to a Pro and they won't allow me to transfer it to the Pro.

For a seven year old TiVo you would think they would let you transfer it. Especially a higher rate like $12.95. They let me transfer the $6.95 rate from a Premiere to a Roamio Basic. And the Premiere was only 3.66 years old. Plus they gave me lifetime on the Premiere for only $99. I just had to purchase the Roamio Basic through TiVo to get the rate transferred.

Have you been paying $12.99/month for the last 7 years (84 months)? Have you considered getting Lifetime on the Roamio? Should be $399 for it if you use the PLSR code when you activate the new box. You may need to keep the TiVo HD on your account until you activate the Roamio (you'll be able to take it off right after that though).
