Advertisements So I recently ended my 4-yr annual subscription on a Tivo Bolt... I wasn't interested in paying the $150 annual fee anymore, and apparently Tivo wasn't interested in offering me a deal on a lifetime subscription, like I had tried to negotiate. I was ready to go full-on cord-cutting with Youtube TV but I'm finding this may not fit my needs. But, there may be an alternative. Are there any drawbacks to buying a Premiere 4 with Lifetime service off Ebay to replace the Bolt? It seems these can be had for ~ $125. Since I'm already in the Tivo ecosystem with two Mini's in the house, is there any reason to continue paying annually? Let me also say that we don't care much about recording capacity or show libraries, or the appearance of the box... we mainly just want the (4) live digital cable tuners (same as the Bolt) to distribute on our 3 main TVs, with the guide info. I'm assuming my existing Bolt M-Card can be used in the Premiere 4. Obviously I'd need to keep my existing cable-TV subscription for this to work (not switching to Internet-only), but it still ends up being cheaper... as long as I don't pay Tivo $150/year going forward. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
