TiVo Lifetime Service Transfer Has Returned: 2019 Edition

In what appears to be something of a new annual tradition, the compelling TiVo Breeze summer sale has returned.

As with the 2018 edition, the highlight for owners of active, older TiVo hardware is the ability to transfer Lifetime service to a new DVR for all of $100. TiVo further sweetens the deal with about a month of overlapping service to get those recordings and season passes transferred over. Bonus: The four tuner TiVo Bolt will handle cable or over-the-air antenna.

Qualifying customers: Owners of TiVo Series 2, TiVo Series 3, TiVo HD, TiVo HDXL and TiVo Premiere series DVRs with Product Lifetime Service who have connected to a TiVo service between July 22, 2018 and July 21, 2019. Your current box will be deactivated on August 30, 2019.

Potentially complicating your purchasing decision are signs of an incoming line of TiVo Edge hardware. However, TiVo’s core competencies won’t change and Lifetime transfers are a rare bird, indeed.

  • Waah! Why doesn't this offer include the Roamio?

    If it did I'd do it in a second, just for the 4K and the better UI performance. Hydra is a bit pokey on my Roamio...

    • Well... if the TiVo Edge is released this year, perhaps a 2020 PLS transfer summer sale would extend to Roamio. Beyond that, they've got some interesting promos going on that bundle hardware and service and insurance for a monthly fee -- they're advertising it in the upper right.

  • My Series 3 went belly-up (dead harddrive) a few months ago. Hopefully it wan't a year ago. Any special code needed?
