Charter continues to spin down their TiVo Premiere leasing program with a request that all remaining units be returned:
On September 10, 2013, TiVo Premiere service from Charter will no longer be available. To avoid interruption in your service, please visit a Charter Store before September 10, 2013 to exchange your current TiVo equipment and remote for Charter DVR® equipment.
Of course, this is specific to Charter-issued hardware versus agnostic TiVo retail DVRs – that will continue to function as expected. And this isn’t doesn’t necessarily foreshadow the end of the road for the two companies, as they’ve been exploring options for a next generation platform… Perhaps intending to channel the TiVo experience via cloud-based ActiveVideo or Pace XG1 hardware, as now deployed on GCI?
