I read somewhere that if one replaces the settop box with a Tivo, one loses pay-per-view. Do you know if that is still true? I suppose that one also loses the widgets, but I've never used the widgets anyway. It would be nice to keep the pay-per-view, though.
Do you know if replacing the settop box with a Tivo violates the contract? I'm retired & I'm looking for ways to save money. My contract expires in May 2019.
Yes everything that is on the set-top box will be gone. You will be using the TiVo interface. The newer TiVos most likely have similar apps and widgets. If not you could buy a Firestick and that would give you access to On Demand content through the providers apps. I don't think it would be breaking the contract as you are just switching equipment. Yes you do rent the cable card.
