    Gabby98 because I am a glutton for punishment I called one more time and mentioned about reading that there was a special promotion for long time customers. After the csr looked into she came back and said that is for Premiere owners only. Not Roamio. Maybe your agent made a mistake because five tries later I have gotten no where. Glad you got it-though. So far know one else has piped in with a success story.

    Confirmed. Just converted my two Roamios, one Pro, one Basic, that were on annual plans to "All In" for $99 each. I'm a LONG time loyal customer (close to 15 years) with multiple devices. Not sure what you need to qualify. But I'm a happy camper!

    I also just got a Roamio with Lifetime ($99 for teh lifetime) last week from this promo. The CSR stated the offer was good until the 31st and was for customers of five years or longer.

    I've been with Tivo for 13 years.

    Well I have been with them since 2000 so I wish I knew the secret.

    Is this for a roamio you just bought or one you already own? I know about the promo for a new roamio. I am referring to a roamio I already own.

    Is FIOS going this way anytime soon? Should I buy a Roamio Basic/PLS now with this legacy deal if/when FIOS switches over? What about Cablevision?

    FIOS already has some MPG-4 channels, although they are not in the lower tiers since some of their legacy equipment isn't capable either. A recent list of the the channels was just posted at http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r30333785-List-of-MPEG-4-Channels .

    So my Roamio Pro arrived today. Letting it warm up to room temp this evening and unfortunately going on vacation in the morning so won't get to play with it until I get back on Sunday.

    One interesting thing is that the manufacture date is October 25, 2014. They did not mention anything about it being a refurbished unit and everything about it seems new (box including tag with matching TSN number).

    Anyone else get a Roamio Pro recently and note the manufacture date?

    Just to make sure I am understanding correctly... These are new devices being bought with $99 lifetime, correct?

    Are people getting $99 on their existing Roamio's?

    Specifically about the basic roamio, thats awesome you got the $99 deal.

    A few pages back I posted about how I was denied that very request (to convert my current $9.99/month on my basic) of a $99 lifetime.

    Customer since early 2006 so I don't have your tenure but I wonder if calling back again would be fruitful?

    I'm seeing that most people are only getting $99 lifetime/all-in on the models above the basic, but you seem to buck that trend.

    And I had bought my roamio basic directly from tivo originally (and transferred the $9.99/month from an old TivoHD ..which was $6.99/month but they said it had to bump up to $9.99 as it was a newer model).

    Will give a call again and see what they say.

    Are people getting the Roamio Basic "All-in" for $300 or $400? The device is $199, and PLS is another $199. Is anyone getting that deal for PLS for $99?

    I got a Roamio Pro through this promotion. I thought it was a great deal! This replaces my 4-tuner Tivo Premiere Elite, and that will in turn replace my ancient 2-tuner Series 3.

    It came yesterday, and I was able to set up the cable card myself using Verizon's online activation website - pretty slick! I don't miss the days of having to schedule a Comcast tech to do the cable card install.

    TiVO is telling me the Roamio Plus is no longer available. The rep said they now only sell the Basic and Pro units. Anyone else getting told this?

    What the previous poster said.

    Also, you may want to edit your post's subject line from "No more pro"

    Good info. That's the lowest I've seen for the Mini v1. Additionally, v2 is sold out on Amazon, at the moment, and the v1 is listed as no longer available via Best Buy:
    For those interested, see this earlier post attempting to clarify the differences between the Mini v1 & v2.

    They only have the Basic and the Pro still for sale on their website. The Plus and the OTA have both been removed, so I would tend to believe them if they say they have no more of them left to sell.

    I just got off the phone with TiVo. They gave me the loyalty deal on the Roamio Pro with All-In (product lifetime) service ($600 plus tax), but refused to include a slide remote, even after I twice insisted that everyone on the forums was getting that.

    Still, it's a lot better than $450+$600 (Amazon price plus regular price for All-In), or $400+$600 for a Bolt.

    I currently have a TiVo HD with lifetime service that was activated almost 7 years ago. The TiVo website also lists my Series 1 with lifetime service, activated 14 years ago, as an "active" device, although it actually died several years ago. I don't know which one qualified me for the loyalty discount.
