TiVo is offering a new DVR hardware option for home entertainment for TV owners who either can't or won't get cable or satellite service with the TiVo Roamio OTA DVR, which has been made specifically to record over-the-air digital HD TV broadcasts.
The TiVo Roamio OTA DVR has a 500 GB hard drive and four TV tuners that allows users with an HD antenna to record up to 75 hours of video. The DVR is compatible with TiVo's smartphone and tablet apps that allow users to manage their recordings, and it also supports Internet streaming video services like Netflix and YouTube.
The DVR will be sold in select Best Buy retail stores for $49.99, but it also requires a $14.99 a month service fee and at least a one year contract. What do you think of the TiVo Roamio OTA DVR and will it be a big hit with TV "cord cutters"?
