TiVo ChristmasTiVo is temporarily offering it’s much loved (and long dead) lifetime subscription option, the Product Lifetime Service, for the Series 3 and HD models.

It’ll cost you $400.00 USD on top of the price of the kit, but that’s it: no more monthly payments, ever.

You’ll have to be quick, though, as the offer only runs until January 2nd next year. It looks like a quick Christmas cash-in.

It also makes the $300.00 USD, three-year service TiVo Giftcard look like rather a silly Christmas present this year.

    Hmm…so considering it costs me $5 per month right now, it’s good for 80 months ($400/5). That’s 6 2/3 years. Indeed, I’ve had TiVo for about 5 years–too bad this wasn’t available at the beginning! I still don’t know about paying for over 6 years in advance. I think this might be more effective for those paying higher rate they’re charging, but since I got in (when DirecTV and TiVo still had their contract w/each other) at the cheapo rate I still think the $5 per month is a steal. ;) Thanks for the info, though!
