    What happens to the shows on my Premiere when I upgrade to a new TiVo and stop paying the monthly on my Premiere? Can we still watch the shows and it simply stops recording new shows?

    The shows are still there and playable, but without features like Pause, REW, FF.
    Live TV would still work, but you get nag screens needing subscription. (Still no pause, REW, FF)

    I didn't think that trick play stopped working without a subscription?

    Yes, the shows will still be viewable sans subscription, but only via a TV directly connected to the output of the DVR; you won't be able to transfer or stream the content stored on the service-less DVR to another TiVo DVR or Mini. Additionally, were you wanting to save any of the content by offloading it or transferring it to another box, you'd want to do so before service is cancelled on the old DVR.
