Seems it has been updated. Now can get a new Vox (500GB, with cable and OTA capability) including lifetime for $350. The unit is $99, the lifetime $250. I have no idea why anyone would take the monthly or yearly subscription, even at discounted price. Monthly is $10 a month, $120 a year. yearly $100 a year. BUT two year commitment. 2 years on monthly is $240, 2 years on yearly is $200. But lifetime only $250? Unless someone might considering cancelling before the two year commitment, not sure what the penalty is.
