    One of my TIVO annual plans is up for renewal 11/30/19. I made a note to cancel it prior to the end of the month so my card does not get charged due to my forgetfulness. I went in this AM and it says, "your friends from TIVO are sad to see me go and that any unused portion of my service will be forfeited." Is this the way to be treated like a friend? Am I reading this right I will be immediately cut off and be not able to use the few days balance of service because I chose not to renew for another year? Brutal!

    If you wait till the day before, remove the network connection then cancel service you still have week plus of functionality.

    But yea, don’t break up with someone the day before your birthday and still expect a present..

    Except, the service already has been paid for. Why not just be, oh, I don't know, fair, and end service after the paid-for term ends?

    Your talking a few days, I would cancel now. Disconnect from the internet first before canceling and it will still work for about 10 days.

    Another question - I do not plan to cancel my Comcast account until the end of December. Presently I am still receiving live TV via the now terminated TIVO. Will the canceled TIVO unit still act as a, "cable box" while plugged in with the cable card in it for the rest of the month until I cancel Comcast? Thanks

    Yea, you should be able manually goto a channel and watch it, press any other buttons than channel numbers and it will start complaining to you.

    If you owned a TiVo it was never about the money. It was about an amazing product that did to VCR's what iPhones did to flip phones. Sadly that time has come for me to just say goodbye old friend, it was fun while it lasted. Thank You
