    Let me know your out come, I really don't know how they can cancel the one year sub there is no time frame listed on the box even in the disclaimer fine print, that would be False advertising. I also wonder if they have informed all the retailers of such, and affixed some sort of sticker or disclaimer on the box
    to make it clear that there is a subscription required. ???

    I can smell a class action suit in the air!

    What I think you smell is the support person who made statements to Johnwashere, because they are full of "it".

    I activated a 'black box' Bolt yesterday on-line, purchased from Fry's last week for $219. Once I entered the TSN, I was only allowed to choose the 'first year free' subscription option. The other options were 'n/a'.

    Good to know Steve, thanks for the update. I'm holding on to my Fry's V1 until I move later in the year.

    Update:

    I received the tivo bolt 500GB that I bought from Fry's site for $199 and activated it on the tivo site and it recognized that it qualified for one years service included at no charge. Really a great deal for a new bolt for only $50.

    I have to say the bolt is much quicker than my Roamio and it is able to stream both netflix and you tube 4k content to my Vizio 2016 P series 4k TV in full 4k. It also updated to the latest firmware version during the setup process. :)

    I don't know how many years you will use your new Bolt, but 4 years from now you will have spent another $450, for a total of $650. On the last Roamio plus (October 2015) sale I paid $450 inc All-In and a slide pro remote, I got 6 tuners and still have a good re-sell price on E-Bay, for more than I paid !! That was a great deal.

    Why does it say in the ad that it's in store or online but when you follow the link it says in store only?

    Just tried to get that deal at Fry's although the coupon code works, you can't get it in store and it isn't shipping either..

    :(
