    Unhappy Australian Tivo Service Ending 31/10/2017 ?

    Hi all,

    Did everyone with an Australian TiVo receive this email message overnight ??

    Important service announcement: TiVo Service ending on 31 October 2017

    After almost a decade of service, we are sad to report that we have reached the end of our TiVo license and the TiVo Service is coming to an end in Australia on 31 October 2017.

    The TiVo Service is what delivers electronic programming guide data to your TiVo device each day, so without it, there will be no electronic programming guide and TiVo recording features such as Season Pass and WishList will stop working. For more information on what will and will not work after 31 October see “What does this mean for you and your TiVo after 31 October?”. Your TiVo device will have extremely limited functionality and we discourage customers from using it after 31 October.

    Unfortunately your TiVo devices (listed below) are not eligible for the TiVo Swap Out Offer as they have not connected to the TiVo Service in the 6 months prior to 1 March 2017:

    TiVo Service Number: 663XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    See Terms and Conditions of TiVo Swap Out Offer.

    We are sure you will find plenty of home entertainment alternatives out there, and are contacting you now to make sure you have plenty of time to upgrade your technology by 31 October 2017 (if you haven't already) and to help make sure your transition is as smooth as possible. As your TiVo device is not active, we suspect you have already upgraded from TiVo to another platform and you can ignore this message.

    Please think of the environment and dispose of your TiVo device at your local e-cycling facility.

    For further information on the end of the TiVo Service and the TiVo Swap Out Offer, please visit

    We wish you all the best and thank you for your support over the years.

    The device they reference above is connected, and has been working constantly for about 6 years !!

    Didn't we have lifetime service?
