Ok, today is my last day of my 1yr contract. I'll be paying $12.95/month from here on out until I choose to cancel. Great. I call Tivo and ask if I can just pre-pay that 12.95/month ($155.40/yr) so I don't have to deal with monthly billing. I was told that if I did that, I would have to pay $170 or so and be put on a new contract. Huh? Why wouldn't they want people to just prepay and save costs on billing at the rate they are currently on? It's confusing for me that I would have to get a whole new agreement just to pay my bill early. I don't care for monthly billing and I pre-pay most things just to get it out of the way. Of course, I could be seeing this wrong, so that's why I'm posting here for clarification.
