    I have a Series 3 with Time Warner cable cards on lifetime and a Priemere that I am paying monthly.

    I am realizing now that you can only stream video from Premiere's.

    Is there any way to purchase new Premiere box but keep my existing lifetime subscription from the S3?

    Please let me know. Thanks.

    No. You can sell your Series 3 with lifetime and use the proceeds to help purchase a Premiere.

    Denver ish...
    If you are asking if you can transfer the lifetime to the Premiere, then the answer is 'no'.

    You can stream video from Series 3 Tivo receivers. I do it all the time, Netflix, Amazon YouTube and more.

    Yeah. You can stream all sorts of low rez, highly compressed crap videos.:rolleyes: It looks like NetFlix is going to get even worse.

    I meant stream them from Tivo to Tivo without getting the blocked sign that happens with the Multi-Room Transfers.

    So I can sell the S3 with the Lifetime service? How do I transfer the lifetime service to someone should I decide to sell?

    Call TiVo. Tell them you are planning on selling your S3 w/Lifetime.
    TiVo will give you a reference number.
    When you sell the S3, give that reference number to the new owner.
    New owner calls TiVo with reference number to get the box on his account.
