TiVo offers lifetime transfer for $300

When TiVo released its high definition Series3 recorder, the company sweetened the pot a bit for die-hard fans by offering existing customers who'd already shelled out the money on a product lifetime plan to transfer that service plan to their new $800 for a few hundred extra bones.
But in general, TiVo ain't in the business of offering lifetime service plans anymore. You just can't raise the same kind of money that way as you can with monthly or yearly service plans.
So that's why it's both surprising and pleasant to find that TiVo is letting customers transfer lifetime service plans again. This time, if you pick up a new 80-hour dual tuner Series2 box, you can transfer your service plan from your Series1 or Series2 box for $300. That includes the price of the new unit.
In order to qualify, you have to have activated your lifetime service plan before June of 2003. The offer ends July 23rd.
