Transfer Your TiVo Lifetime Service to a Series 3 Box for $199
Picture of the Day: My Lifetime or Yours? Dave Zatz has a photo of the day of what looks like an advertisment for the new TiVo Series 3 offering to transfer your old TiVo product Lifetime Service for $199.
I’m not sure where this advertisment came from or 100% for sure if it’s a legit ad, but if it is this would be smart on TiVo’s part. Eliminating their lifetime option and offering only 1, 2, and 3 year monthly service plans TiVo would likely upset many of their current core customers and fans and this *might* be an impediment towards getting someone to upgrade.
It looks like the offer will only run through January 31, 2007 which is smart because it forces people to get off their ass and buy a new TiVo and upgrade or miss out.
