Tivo Bolt 500GB Version for $169.99 at Amazon (Regular Price $199.99)

https://www.amazon.com/TiVo-BOLT-...B01DR4T754

This is the newer version that does not include the first year subscription.

$550 for lifetime service. If you want to pay by the year you might be better off getting the version which includes the first year.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

I spoke to my dog about this, who also has a JD. According to Barkley, Esquire, 16 years is a lifetime.

It was $200 in 2000 (and in late 1999 when I got mine). AND if you've actively used it in the last 7 months, they're giving you a $75.00 visa card to apologize for the fact that the programing data won't work after September.

So $125 for 16 years of service is really not bad. However, I do understand being irritated at the principle of the thing. So call them.

I'm grandfathered in since I payed for lifetime prior to mid-Jan 2000, and I can switch my lifetime to a new device once. If you truly bought your lifetime subscription back in 2000, call and talk to them. Even if you don't fall under the grandfather time-frame, they may switch your lifetime service to a new device. There are only about 3500 of us still actively using series 1, and they seem to truly feel bad about antagonizing their most loyal customers.





Only about 3500 of us still do - but it was very easy to upgrade the hard drive, it still works, and who cares about HD or only one tuner when it's your secondary DVR and it's mostly just used for "My Little Pony". Smilie

16 years from a piece of consumer electronics is arguably many lifetimes as far as these things go. $20.31/year for TiVo service over those 16 years (including the $75 consolation gift) is not too shabby.

Not trying to be an ass, as I'm genuinely curious, but how is it that someone who was cutting edge enough to pick up a DVR before DVRs were on most people's radars has been satisfied recording in Standard Definition over the last 10 or so years since HD became mainstream?

One year of service is $150, so the old model Bolt is a better deal at $299.

Service deal is better. Mine ended up costing me $60 for this first year if you count the $150 for the cost of one year service. This would be over 300 + tax for the cost of 1 year service, more than original MSRP.

What is the difference between the 2 models other than the inclusion of 1 year of service.

There are still sporadic deals on the sub Bolt version, can be picked up for 199-229. I hope to do this in next few months before I'm charged a year of service and then I can sell my old Bolt for something as its a very nice device.

Don't support TiVo. I paid $400 for "Lifetime" service in the year 2000, and they are shutting my TiVo down.

16 years ... is not a lifetime.

Wait so you're complaining that your box from 2000 still doesn't work?

I think the cardboard box that it comes in is a different color. That's about it.

I understand what you are saying, but who is using a series 1 these days? You got monies worth. I got $99 lifetime after having tivo fit 2 years. You should be flipping these things.
