Talking Specials on TiVo fees

Does TiVo ever offer specials on the monthly/lifetime subscription fees? How about specials on the HomeMediaOption fee?

Combo deals, on sale this month, rebate, etc?

The reason I'm asking is that I just purchased a brand new TiVo unit to give as a gift to my parents this month. I'm planning to go for the $299 lifetime subscription, and maybe the $99 HomeMediaOption. The only feature of the HomeMediaOption that we are likely to use is the remote scheduling from internet; ReplayTV gives you that for free; TiVo charges $99. Ugh!

Past specials might give a hint as to whether specials will be offered in the future.

I don't know of any, but I do remember a time when the lifetime subscription fee was going up, but we had a last chance to buy in before it did. Fortunately for me, that was within my first month with a TiVo, so I did.

never been a "sale" or dicsount on service to my knowledge.

THey do seem to give warning of impending increases though.

A couple times they have done things with people who already have lifetime (some early folks were allowed one swap, and more recenetly you could swap lifetime on a series one unit to a series 2) but no discounts on teh service.

Plenty of sales and rebates on the hardware over time.

I assume you know if there is more than one unit on your account the 2nd and subsequent units get HMO for 1/2 price. (so if you have it for yourself and put the gift on your account you can get it for 1/2 price. But dont expect the show sharing to work between more than one location)

Don't feel bad, this is the first special I've seen on any of their subscription services since 2000.
