TiVo Stories October 16

TiVo is a brand name that is well known when it comes to recording TV shows. It was one of the original digital video recorders (along with ReplayTV). I purchased the Series 2 TiVo in 2003, and I used it for four years before retiring it for a Comcast branded DVR when I got my first HDTV in 2007. Even after switching to a non-TiVo DVR, I missed the familiar interface. Even to this day, I’ve used countless DVR solutions from various companies, and nothing touches the simplicity of the TiVo. Will the TiVo Bolt OTA for Antenna live up to the hype?

TiVo Stories September 27

TiVo is a bit of a household name when it comes to DVRs outside of your normal cable provider offerings. The company has been a go-to name for many years when people want the ability to record over-the-air broadcasts to watch later.

Well, TiVo announced its all-new BOLT OTA for Antenna today. This DVR is a 4K model that is built to work with HD antennas, so you can record the highest-quality over-the-air broadcasts, though TiVo still charges its monthly fee, so you won’t be getting off completely scot-free here.

TiVo Stories January 4

This morning, TiVo has announced the next generation of its content platform that is heavily-focused on a new streaming service. Dubbed the Next-Gen Platform, TiVo hopes to finally bring the unification of our content across all devices that we’ve been longing for. That includes cable providers, streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime, along with your own content.

The Next-Gen Platform will be based around TiVo’s upcoming cloud service that it has been teasing for some time. And while this all seems like an obvious next step for our digital lives, bringing all of our content into one location has largely alluded the big studios and providers to date.

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.

TiVo Stories September 30, 2015

The DVR has become an instrumental piece of nearly every respectable home theater setup. With streaming services like Netflix and Hulu offering an on demand approach, many consumers expect the same from their cable or satellite service. TiVo started this revolution back in 1999 but since then its set-top boxes have largely remained the same in design and function.

Today, TiVo announced the Bolt, a new DVR that sports a stunning new design and is loaded with features. This is the first product from TiVo in years that has truly caught my attention and has me reaching for my wallet.  expand full story

expiredCut the cord in style by adding a TiVO Roamio OTA DVR to your setup for a one-time $300 fee

TiVo may not be as popular as it once was during the early part of this century, but the company’s gear is still one of the best ways to watch TV. Late last summer TiVo put out its Roamio OTA DVR system and since then reviewers continually called it the best over-the-air DVR system for cord cutters. However, most of the time that sentiment was followed by harsh criticism of TiVo’s monthly fees.

But now that barrier has been demolished with TiVo’s new pricing structure…

Today, TiVo announced a new addition to it’s already robust line of DVRs with the Roamio OTA at a price of $49.99, making it the most affordable TiVo option yet. Designed specifically for cord-cutters, this rendition of the Roamio utilizes your own antenna.

Similar to the other models of the Roamio that have come before, the OTA features a 500GB hard drive capable of recording 75 hours of HD programming or 500 hours of SD. This model also allows for up to four shows to be recorded at once, and includes the same popular streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. But there is a catch…. expand full story

TiVo Stories August 20, 2013

TiVo is officially taking the wraps of its latest family of Wi-Fi enabled DVRs today dubbed “Roamio”, which appear to be replacing the company’s high-end Premiere offerings. In addition to inking some new deals with cable providers and redesigning its interface, TiVo is adding a ton of features with the new boxes, including a number of streaming options and support for the DIAL protocol (the same one used by Chromecast) for streaming and controlling apps like Netflix from mobile devices.

Six built-in tuners allow the device to record all your favorite shows at once. It is also moving to a new HTML5 engine for a smoother native app experience and introducing an “out-of-home” streaming feature that will launch for iPhone and iPad later this year.
