    OK $30/mnth for 2 years. I could cancel my Roamio and spare Premiere as well as a cable card. Thats 14.99+9.99+4.99 =$29.97. plus tax!! No other fees for the 2 years or do I need service as well? The thought of pairing a cablecard is daunting. This would bring me one step closer to Atmos and DV. I am completely happy with what I have now.

    I assume the 0 down works like their old 0 down Bolt sales - the monthly charge (30, in this case) includes TiVo service. After two years, service goes back to whatever they’re charging at that point.

    Personally, I’m not doing it - I’d be inclined to pick up a lifetime Roamio Plus/Pro and put a new drive in it if I needed more tuners (and wanted to consolidate boxes). They’re starting to get pretty cheap on eBay, from what I’ve seen.

    Cablecards aren’t that bad, provider depending. I had Spectrum and even that was only a twenty-minute phone call. Now I’ve got Comcast and they have a self-activation page, it’s the dog’s bollocks.

    I have comcast as well. Self activation did not work. When you make a call thecrep either has never heard if cablecard or they are experts. Plus Comcast does all it can to keep you from a human; which is why when you do get a human you are already enraged. When will these companies learn to just have humans answer the call?

    Oh, god help you if you have to call Comcast. I got a hold time of forty minutes to report a home internet outage for a client of mine last week.
