    Isn't X-finity a paid service you need a $40 monthly subscription to watch? I am talking about free on demand available through my cable service.

    Need to eliminate this discussion from this thread. This thread is reserved for people bitching about not getting AP code and people begging to get an unused one!

    To that end, anyone want to send me theirs? Pretty please!!

    So, a lot of people don't know how or just aren't interested in selling old hardware. Or they plan on using it until it dies, like my S2 did. I mean, who is to say there will BE a next generation of TiVo? Maybe we'll just have Roamio's with incremental upgrades? If they have settled on an HTML5 platform finally for apps, there's less need for hardware updates. Refresh the core periodically and redesign the box, done. In that case, each month you sit on your lifetime box is "profit" so to speak.

    If they offer me the $99 lifetime when i call later today to cancel my two other boxes, I'll take them up on it, and give them to family for the $99 price so they can save money on cable boxes. Which is a win/win for them and for Tivo, since TiVo increases their user base and my family save money on cable boxes and get to be sold on how much better TiVo's are. So hopefully they offer me that.

    I know there's a thread for that topic, so I won't clog up this one with that discussion...

    I ordered about 2 hours after I got it, and my boxes are out for delivery today.

    Yes.

    I paid like $860 for a plus and a mini and lifetime for both.

    Which is like what I paid for my S3 without any service at all :wacko:

    Xfinity is a brand they market a bunch of stuff under, a lot of which is "included." You might be thinking of Streampix.

    Point is, Comcast on-demand is available in certain markets with a CableCard-equipped Roamio or Premire.

    Yes, service is required as part of the bundled AP package, however.. that means a *new* sub rate.. they won't transfer your current rate. Some of us were successful in keeping our current MSD rates, but that hasn't been the norm.

    Mine are due to be here tomorrow.

    Your can check here to see if Comcast on-demand is available where you live (scroll down towards the bottom). No such luck for us!

    you literally think I should read the entire thread before responding to a post?

    No.

    I read from back-to-front and respond as I go.

    Back in the day, this was considered good netiquette ~

    Be Patient: Read everything in the discussion thread before replying. This will help you avoid repeating something someone else has already contributed. Acknowledge the points made with which you agree and suggest alternatives for those with which you don’t.

    But back to the discussion at hand... TiVo sent me another offer. However, this was tied to a specific unit that I already own and wasn't as good as the AP offer. In fact, it was pretty much just like the November email/flyer offer that we've talked about here.

    And you couldn't make it up six posts? Ha....and, not only was it addressed once, but at least twice. That's called LAZINESS.

    I just pulled the plug on a Roamio Pro with Lifetime.

    I have an HD with an upgraded internal HD that I've been happy with, but some great deals on Premieres raised my interest in upgrading. However, after getting the discount in the mail, I finally said forget the Premiere, let's go all the way to the Roamio! I toyed with getting the Plus and putting in my own 3TB HD, but the price wasn't that much different. I will keep my HD and use it to replace one of my HD Cable boxes, so that will help defray the costs a bit.

    As a long time Tivo'er back to the S1, I'm really psyched to get my Roamio. The only thing I'm not thrilled about is the steaming only to Apple products. I hear they are working on Android, but would really like to stream to Windows.

    Our new Roamio PRO will be replacing a Premiere that we currently have. While I like it the Premiere, I'm looking forward to the PRO :up:

    I was a die-hard Android user for years but I got so used to using my husband's iPhone and iPad, that I made the switch late last year. I'm glad I did because everyone in my family has an iPhone and now I feel like I'm on the same page with them.

    Have you heard anything about when streaming to android might be available?

    The Tivo Customer Service Rep said they were actively working Android and it should be ready soon. Whatever "soon" is? When I asked about Windows there was a long awkward pause before he said idk.
