Also, it will ask you for credit card info if you plan on making purchases, but you can skip that step if you want.

A few good titles that are available for free are “School of Rock,” “True Grit,” “The Magnificent Seven,” “Phantom of the Opera,” “Mad Max,” “Star Trek Nemesis,” “The Walking Dead,” and many more. This new program is a smart move by the Walmart owned company to generate revenue from older content and potentially attract new customers that may end up buying or renting premium content. Vudu is accessible from the web and via downloadable app for iOS and Android. Also you can watch on most smart TVs, Roku, and Chromecast.

Amazon offers the TiVo Roamio OTA HD DVR with lifetime service for $299.99 with free shipping. TiVo normally charges $49.99 for the Roamio OTA DVR box plus an additional $14.99 per month (with a 1-yr commitment) to keep it running. With this deal you pay $300 and never have to pay another dime for TiVo service. That means you’ll be forking over an additional $250 up-front, but you’ll recoup that in about 17 months by not having to pay the recurring $15 fee. This TiVo is designed to work with over-the-air HDTV antennas (Mohu/AmazonBasics are best bets).

It’ll record up to four shows at once and can store up to 75 hours of HD programming on its 500GB hard drive. It also features TiVo’s popular guide and suggestion interfaces, with unified search across TV and streaming apps including Netflix and Amazon Prime. You can even access TiVO from your iPhone or iPad with its iOS apps, but you’ll need the Stream box to actually watch TV and movies on your mobile devices. Just keep in mind that it doesn’t support cable cards.

Looking for the ultimate TV experience? TiVo’s new Bolt DVR features one-click commercial skipping. expand full story
