Re: How to upgrade to Motorola 7xxx series for free

said by Grover8:

If you have one of the old Motorola 6xxx series, whether it be a DVR or non-DVR, you can upgrade for free via a trick.

Verizon is offering Free NHL preview til January 31st. Now when you have the old box and try to tune to channel 1470 you will get a message saying you need to upgrade your box to view this channel. This is due to the channel being MPEG-4 which the Motorola 6xxx series do not support. Go through the process and Verizon will ship a new box to you in 3-7 business days via UPS.

Also you can order a new remote if you want also from your TV. Go go to In-Home-Agent and select "get new remote".

The box is a free upgrade. No extra charge other than what your paying monthly for the box.

Enjoy!

So my question is, I have a 6xxx series box in my basement that is part of the free for life program. If I have that box upgraded, would it still be free in terms of not being charged a monthly fee for it?

I suspect not, but you could certainly call and ask.

When I signed up for FiOS 15 months ago they offered a free for life receiver for my second TV set, but it was only for SD, not HD. I passed.

I will call on Sunday or Monday. I am sure they will say no way on the phone.
