Advertisements In case anyone is interested in another data point on this lifetime upgrade ... I had a Series2 DT on 3 year monthly plan (I see $7.61 monthly charges which used to be $6.95 charges as I'm on MSD). Originally activated 9/2007 and running through 9/2010. I bought a $99 Tivo HD from Blockbuster and transferred the service over. Then I sent in an email to Tivo support simply inquiring if my account qualifies for $99 lifetime upgrade figuring it couldn't hurt as there's nothing to lose. It's debatable if I would've upgrade the Series2 to lifetime for another $99 but definitely worth it if I could do the HD. I unexpectedly get a call back today stating that yes, I could get the $99 lifetime and asked whether I wanted to do it now or in September when my current plan expires. I said I'd like to do the upgrade now and was told it'll take a couple of days to go through. It just happened today so it's not a done deal but I'm hopeful that I'll have $99 lifetime on my new Tivo HD in a couple of days!
