TiVo brings back Lifetime Service

TiVo brings back Lifetime Service
71ECFDA3-9734-4538-B544-AF596B102D27.jpgThe subscription-based TiVo service has quietly brought back its Lifetime Service subscription plan on a permanent basis, extending what was originally a temporary deal. When it originally launched, the service offered similar lifetime subscriptions that were ultimately phased out in July 2003. The lifetime service is receiver-specific, though it is possible to transfer it from an older receiver to another one for a fee of nearly $200 that also maintains a one-year subscription to the TV recording service for the older device.
The Lifetime Service plan costs nearly $400 and is priced to compete against annual subscription rates, which run nearly $130 in typical use. The feature should work with both Series 2 and Series 3 DVRs and should be available immediately”
