Lifetime Series2s still out there.

User bubba1972 over at posted this. If you go to and search on ‘TiVo’ they have a 40-hour S2 with lifetime for $599, an 80-hour S2 with lifetime for $669, and a Humax DRT400 with lifetime for $879. Based on those prices compared to TiVo’s bundle pricing, it looks like lifetime is valued at around $599.

    That’s… nuts.

    Well, what’s the current monthly cost? The question of how much a lifetime is “worth” is basically figuring out how many months it would take to reach that cost point, I guess…

    I wonder how many of those they have in stock…. And I also wonder if Tivo will still “honour” the Lifetime Services. Would that selling company simply transfer it in your name? How does that work…

    $598 is what I paid for my Tivo 40H S2 with life time so that seems pretty fair. Id be willing to pay that again for a second of the same.

    Makes sense to me. Most people prolly plan on keeping their TiVo at least 4 years. A 3yr sub is $400, a 1yr is $200. 3yr + 1yr = $600.

    I bet they simply did a deal with TiVo to get the units with lifetime pre-activated. There were deals like that in the past, before lifetime went away, and TiVo can still do lifetime, they just don’t offer it normally.

    Ok, so I’m guessing us “normal” guys cant make such deals etc. However As Sir Richard Branson Says: “Haggle, Everything is negotiable.”

    Yeah – if you wanted to buy boxes in bulk to resell, I bet you could work something out.
