Important service announcement: TiVo Service ending on 31 October 2017
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 New Zealand 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.
We are glad that when the time comes, you will have been able to enjoy your TiVo device for at least 5 years. 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 and to help make sure your transition is as smooth as possible.
Please think of the environment and dispose of your TiVo device at your local e-cycling facility.

We wish you all the best and thank you for your support over the years.
Just had this come through to me via e-mail... Have had this unit since launch day in 2009, so is going to be weird switching to something else. Anyone got suggestions for an alternative? I've got zero clue on what is out there in the market since I've had this for so long.
