Get a TiVo HD and transfer your lifetime subscription for $199

TiVo HD Product Lifetime
It's been a while since TiVo offered new customers a product lifetime subscription. But if you're one of the lucky few who picked up a TiVo Series1 or Series2 box back in the day and paid a flat fee for service, you're in luck. And by luck, I mean if you're ready to shell out even more money to buy a new TiVo HD, you can transfer your product lifetime service for an extra $199.

Of course, if you aren't planning on watching any high definition TV for a while, you might as well keep the box you've got. But if you were going to pick up a $300 TiVo HD anyway, this is a pretty good deal. You'd wind up spending over $150 on a one year subscription for your new box, which makes an extra $199 look like a pretty good deal.

There's no indication TiVo plans to offer newer customers a lifetime service option. This offer is geared at getting older customers to upgrade their boxes.

[Thanks Mandabar!]

Mandabar - Yes, you can upgrade the drives in a Series3 or TiVo HD. They also have eSATA ports to connect external drives. They're supposed to be officially enabled this year, but there are ways to make it work now.

Well, I'm not in the advice giving business, but if you're planning on getting an HDTV any time soon, this looks like about as good a deal as you're likely to get on an HD TiVo.

On the other hand, if you're planning on sticking with standard definition TV for a few more years you can probably save a few hundred bucks and wait for the TiVo Series4 3D video recorder.

Awesome.. er.. Well.. Should I chuck in my series one and plunk down 500$$ for a series 3 lifetime? My series one sure has lasted a long time... 8 years just about =)
