Tablo has announced that it will no longer offer customers the option to pay a one-time fee of $179.99 for lifetime TV guide service and other premium features. The lifetime subscription option will be removed on August 30, but this will not affect existing lifetime subscription customers as their plans will remain active. Anyone wanting to buy the lifetime subscription before it’s gone can do so and continue using the service after the plan has been removed. That needs to be done by August 29 because on August 30, the yearly $49.99 and monthly $4.99 options will be the only subscription plans that remain. If you recently purchased a yearly plan and want to upgrade to the lifetime plan before it’s gone, Tablo’s policy is to not offer any refunds for unused portions of its subscriptions, but the company says you can contact support to see if an exception can be made. Tablo TV guide data service subscriptions are used with its line of networked OTA DVRs which come with 1 day of guide data included. Paying for a subscription grants you 14 days of guide data, as well as a few premium features like out-of-home viewing of your recordings and live TV.
