Outside of Apple, it’s inevitable that a vendor’s product pricing drops over time. So it comes as no surprise that TiVo is offering a $100 discount on Roamio Pro hardware to folks that call in looking for a deal, lowering TiVo’s top-end unit with 3TB of storage, 6 tuners, and streaming capabilities from $600 to $500. It’s also appears non-subscribers may be offered discounted Lifetime service pricing typically reserved for existing customers – $400 versus $500. It may not be quite as good a deal as I received and still seems somewhat pricey, but a hundred bucks is a far more logical delineation between the 1TB Plus and 3TB Pro model — with the only difference being storage space. And it may be the best we’re going to get in 2013. Having said that, CEO Tom Rogers has indicated they intend to target Premiere owners for upgrades… and I could imagine some sort of Lifetime Service transfer dealio in the works as well.
