I'm about to buy a V3 kit, can someone confirm that its still possible to get the 'grandfathered' deal to a one time upgrade and not be forced into a subscription? It'd be on a brand new account.
Thank you for your question,
With the v3+ (not v3) you are not forced into anything. All features are available, however if you want some of the features automated you can choose a subscription. For more details you can review this article:
Yes, you can purchase a V3 and then upgrade for a one time fee,
