    I purchased a tivo bolt advertised as a cable or ota receiver on ebay. When i went to set it up earlier I discovered tivo will only offer me the 14.99 plan. I dont have cable and dont plan to get it. Has anyone had any luck getting the bolt (model TCD849000) activated with the ota plan 6.99? I now know which box I should have been looking for (TCD849000VO). I have a hard time understanding why they dont want me as a customer. I am barley interested at 6.99 a month. Is my only option to put this back on ebay?

    Resell it and get the correct model. Get it with lifetime and you'll have no monthly fee.

    So much this. Either a Roamio OTA (make sure it comes with Lifetime--early models didn't) or a Bolt OTA that either comes with Lifetime or that you can buy for it (I would double-check that with TiVo).
