    I have had a Tivo Bolt (4 tuner 500gb) for about 3 years. We use it for ota only. The $149 subscription is due in February. I see that I can buy a new Tivo Bolt ota for $220 and lifetime for $249. Which makes more sense? To keep paying $149 annually, or $469 for a new one with no future payments.

    Also consider that with the Bolt OTA, the subscription is only $7/month or $70/year, making your break even point over 3.5 years from now. Either way, it's definitely better than $150/year.

    Even better deals can be found on Roamio OTA, closer to $300 including lifetime.

    Call them, tell them to cancel the upcoming 1 year payment and ask for a discounted lifetime. $199 should be no problem getting, even if you have to let it cancel for a few days.
