    I just got a Premier XL! Excited to be back with TiVo. Doing OTA only...

    Any thoughts on any "specials" on Black Friday for service? I am looking at Lifetime and wondered if they have done anything like this in the past.

    Thanks for any replies! :D

    To my knowledge they have never done a Black Friday sale.

    Didn't the Premiere go to $99 sometime around now last year?

    This was a price change. Hardware dropped $200 and monthly and lifetime went up.

    Just took one of my HD's and they gave me lifetime for $99.00 (have 3 HD's and ordered an Elite direct from Tivo). This was yesterday. I was paying $129.00 per year annual payment and they said it was eligible for the lifetime. Took advantage of it.

    Can you share details of what was in the mailer? Since I'm not a current customer (other than by proxy through DirecTV) I'm not on their spam list.

    I had been hoping for some kind of fantastic deal at Best Buy on Friday.

    Basically Tivo Premiere for $79.99 plus $19.99/month service - one year commitment. Free shipping.

    I'm looking for a black Friday special on a TiVo life-time service plan than I am the TiVo itself.

    Sorry, it was a snail mail thing and just went straight to yesterday's trash pick-up. Can't believe they bothered/spent the money to send out glossy tri-folds for something that banal. If you really want a decent Premiere w/o a service commitment there are new, upgraded 2TB units available on eBay from reliable seller(s) for $250. Much better deal, especially for anyone eligible for MSD.

    I haven't seen any type of lifetime deals. $400 for MSD and $500 otherwise.

    Yea - nothing so far for any deals but I am watching for sure.. I went ahead and popped for lifetime, but if anything new comes along within 30 days I will make the change.

    That's still $250 plus the service. I could get one for $80 and put my own 2TB drive in for under nothing since I have a bunch of 2TB drives lying. That's basically $170 for the 2TB drive. Even when I got my pre configured 2TB drive almost 1.5 years ago, it wasn't near that price.
