    I have a Tivo Premiere that's New and I never activated. So I was wondering, is there an Activation fee in addition to the monthly service charge? What are my chances of getting a deal on a Lifetime service if I called, or are they not doing deals on Lifetime anymore??

    No activation fee just the charges for whichever service you pick. If you've never activated it, I would be surprised if they gave you a deal on Lifetime/All-in service but ask and let us know if you are successful.

    There was a recent tale of a Premiere being activated and then after 1 month they decided to not continue. When they called TiVo to cancel, they were offered $99 All-In.

    Your best bet for scoring a $99 lifetime deal on it is to activate it on a monthly plan then after several weeks call in to cancel and see if they offer it to you.

    And the best part of that ploy is that if you cancel that monthly service before 30 days, you get a full refund if they won't offer you a good lifetime deal.

    When you call to cancel, just tell them the box is too old and slow to be worth continuing to pay a monthly fee. If they don't jump on that, you have nothing to lose by asking them if they can cut you a deal on cheaper service.
