Hot Deal! All-In-One service alone is normally $549.99. With this deal you pay less and get a free TiVo Bolt Vox and Mini Vox.

FYI - Tivo is ADDING commercials to your recordings. It started about a month ago for me. You can't skip them or fast forward past them.

Decent deal. All I have to add to this is get the extended warranties. I bought a TiVo renewed Bolt and it stopped tuning channels within a year. That $30 extended warranty saved me. The standard warranty on all TiVo equipment is 90 days. I wouldn't risk it with refurbished equipment.

Ugh, talk about killing your product. Tivo is expensive and has a strong niche following because of the ease of use and clean interface. Now they go as far as actually inserting commercials into your recordings that you can't skip through. No thanks, I'm out.

Why does everyone who post this relevant information in every single Tivo thread fail to mention that they are 2 simple ways to avoid pre-roll ads? Also, the ads themselves are easily skippable with the remote. You are not forced to watch them.

Only 4 tuners and pre-roll ads? No thanks. I'll keep going with my Roamio Pro on TE3.

Just for comparison, the new OTA 1TB is currently $149.99 on Amazon (with VOX remote).

If you plan on using OTA only, $6.99/mo or $69.99/year, the $350 difference pays for 5 years of pay per year service (but of course the deal also includes a VOX mini, so more like 3 years if you also get that for OTA).

I'll be doing the same, but I have to admit that this offer would make a great holiday gift for people who haven't got into streaming too much like grandparents, in-laws. etc. From what I heard the pre-roll ads are only a bother to existing Tivo subscribers for the most part. New subscribers will just skip over them and go to their shows.

The old interface is better/faster anyway, and there are no pre-roll ads if you use the old interface.

I think this may be the last model with OTA and cable. The new Edge is one way or the other. Am I correct?

I downgraded my standard Bolt to TE3 which I agree is better than Hydra. Can you downgrade VOX units?

Just for comparison, the OTA 1TB was $149.99 recently. This deal is $350 more.

For OTA only, $6.99/mo or $69.99/year, that's like paying 50 months (4+ years) worth of per month or 5 years worth of per year service.
This deal is $8.30/mo for 5 years with a free Bolt and $180 Mini which you did not factor in. Yes. You have to pay all this upfront hence the usual "too expensive" complaints but afterwards it's all yours to do whatever you like with.

Yep. I have 3 mini VOXs all running the old software.
