I am getting ready to purchase a Replay TV unit but I have one question about the required subscription fee. From what I can see, I have the option to choose either paying a one-time payment of $299 which covers a lifetime subscription for the unit I purchase, or I can pay $12.95 per month.


My question is this: If I want to go with the $299 one time payment option, do I have to do that up front when I initially register and activate the unit? Or can I initially pay the monthly $12.95 fee until I am comfortable that the unit performs as I want it to, and then at a later point in time upgrade by paying the $299 fee?

You can upgrade to lifetime later, but if the price for lifetime changes between now and then, you'll pay lifetime at the going rate when you change to lifetime.


This is covered in the FAQ at www.replayfaqs.com , search on lifetime then it's about haflway down the page. However the lifetime price listed is the old price, it's currently $299.

Hmmm...good question. Not in the FAQ on their site. Offhand, I'd say they'd be thrilled to extract $299 plus $12.95 times X months from you. Give 'em a call and see what they say.

No need to call. You can definitely do that. That's what many of us who purchased units around the time of SonicBlue's bankruptcy did to be safe. Note that you will NOT receive credit for any monthly fees already paid at the time of your switch to lifetime. You will still have to pay the entire $299.
