    Last year I bought a S2DT with the 1yr prepay directly from Tivo.
    1yr prepay - $224.00
    S2DT upgrade - $30.00

    That 1yr period is ending next month.... what's next ?

    If you do nothing you will continue on as a month to month customer at the current monthly rate for a 1 year commitment plan ($16.95/month).

    Good Luck

    You can always prepay another year (or 2 or 3)

    If you do nothing, it will continue and you will be automatically billed at the current monthly rate of $16.95/month.

    You can get that lowered by 1 of 5 ways:
    1. Commit to a 2-year commitment at $14.95/mo.
    2. Commit to a 3-year commitment at $12.95/mo.
    3. Prepay another 1-yr, for $179 (avg. $14.92/mo.)
    4. Prepay 2-yrs, for $299, (avg. $12.46/mo.), but see next option:
    5. Prepay 3-yrs, currently discounted to the 2-yr rate, for $299, thus like getting 1 year free or avg. $8.31/mo.
    You can change this by calling TiVo, or logging into your Manage My Account on tivo.com and selecting Activate or Upgrade TiVo Service.

    just called TiVo and they indicated the default renewal after the 1-yr prepay is the $12.95 rate...

    but I'm not sure if they implies a 3-yr term, and what the early termination fee would be.

    I bought the DT with a 1 yr prepay last August. It equated to $12.95. After the 1yr was up, it defaulted to $16.95. My 2 other tivo's stayed at $6.95. So either I am getting the shaft or the CSR is full of bull saying that the default is $12.95.

    I'd recommend calling TiVo back and speaking with another CSR or a supervisor. Sounds like that CSR may have given you misinformation.

    The month-to-month default after a 1-yr committment is the then 1-yr monthly rate, which is currently $16.95.

    Recently Tivo dropped the two year prepay rate down to $279 and they've stopped calling the $299 for three year option a "special" because it's now the regular price.

    Yep, I had noticed that very recent change as well, that was made not long after that post of mine...

    The 3-yr $299 had been in effect for so long now that they probably figured it was about time to just make it a standard price rather than a special...
