    Got off the phone with their sales rep and he said they would not be able to offer the free year tomorrow even if you purchased today and activated the Bolt tomorrow. I guess I'll lose a month and activate it today.

    That's insane. I guess I will cancel my order and move on.

    Not legal in any way. You buy a box today that includes a free year, it includes a free year. One day is not a reasonable time for the offer to expire.

    If your SKW is the one for a free year you will get the free year, same problem years ago when TiVo changed TiVo cost and lifetime cost, I just called and TiVo took care of me, they said I might have to send TiVo the invoice, but they never asked.

    I agree. Either trolling or spoke to an idiot. The picture on the previous page makes it pretty clear which has service included

    I thought about it. But I am worried that I will not be able to get Verizon FIOS due to the strike. They canceled my install already once. With no FIOS, I would then have an activated TiVo and no tv. If that's the case, I can just return it to Best Buy

    Yeah if you're still in the return window, you can just return it if they won't honor the free year. I suggest you keep an eye on the forums next week. If there are any cases of TiVo not honoring the free year of service, people will invariably report it here.

    I think there will be many of the $199 boxes given as gifts and then never activated.

    No, not really. I see no reason why they would change the hardware of the Bolt so soon after launch. And I see no reason why they would change the hardware of the Roamio given that it works fine and it helps them to reduce costs by continuing to build it with the same old technology they have been.

    I guess that makes sense.

    I agree. The v2 is probably just the packaging. No free year plus different color box.

    Yep. Looks like they lowered the price to $200/$300 respectively and got rid of the one year of included service.

    Hi Zonker007,

    Thanks for the tip. I picked one up last night as well. According to the upc posted a few posts up this one should include the year of service. I am in no hurry to activate it so I'll call to confirm while its still within the return period.

    Ordered mine moments ago. No shipping, no tax. Hard to beat that price. Now I have 2 so I can do hd upgrades with no down time.

    My Bolt arrived today. It was a black box that stated 1 year of service on the back. I can confirm that registering it on the website included 1 year of service free.

    Still setting things up, but sorely disappointed I cannot activate HBOGo via my DirecTV account :-\
