    Has anyone heard or received any good deal on Lifetime subscription for Roamio lately?

    I was hoping the $99 retention deal is still alive.

    Not likely, it ended long while ago. Only those that are on monthly (or yearly) for several years apply.

    I'll need to check mine then. I've been on the $6.95 monthly plan for many years. Starting with an S3 and then it got transferred to a Premiere. Then got transferred to a Roamio Basic in 2013. So if I could get lifetime for $99 I would jump on it. But I haven't checked in a couple of years. The last time I checked they wouldn't offer it to me.

    Either that or I'll get another $300 Bolt which includes All in service from my Premiere and S3 boxes. But I would prefer to continue using my Roamio BAsic for OTA. Since it has a 3TB drive in it and can be used as a back up for my two Bolts on Cable in a pinch.

    Ever since Tivo outsourced their customer service/retention department to overseas, the deals have been much more difficult to get than American agents.

    Let me know what happens when you try.

    I called in today (8/1/2018) to cancel service on a Tivo Roamio Plus that I have been paying $9.99 per month going on 4 years now. I didn't expect to keep it as long as I did, considering that I also have two 4-tuner bolts with All-In service. I guess I just preferred the 6 tuners and the box-design that allowed me to stack it with my other components.

    I've been with tivo since 2002 and have been offered $99 All-In in previously when canceling boxes (S3 and premiere). But today on my Roamio Plus, Tivo only offered All-In service for $199 or to reduce my monthly payments to $6.95 per month. I would have accepted All-In at $99 and asked the rep if they could do that, which they declined.

    All-in is what Tivo calls lifetime now.

    A coworker had a Premiere and a Roamio on monthly service and they were offered $99 all-in service for the premiere and $199 for the Roamio recently.

    I called today, & was quoted $549. Do you have to threaten to cancel to get an offer?

    $549 is regular price. You have to had been paying for a long time to qualify for retention I believe.

    For that price I guess I shouldn't bother. I'll just keep the $6.95 a month I have on my Roamio Basic. Although if things weren't changing with oTA, I would probably pick up another Bolt with the special Premiere/ S3 transfer deal they have going on. Or maybe that already ended?

    Yes, you have to threaten to cancel. I see you've had service for over three years so I think you would get the offer. Just hang up and call back again, if you don't get the offer. I would try calling back a few times.
