TiVo Releases a New DVR for People Without Cable Subscriptions

TiVo Roamio OTA DVR

TiVo may have a number of lucrative partnerships with pay TV operators, but the company isn’t giving up on cord cutters either: On Monday, TiVo announced a new version of its Roamio DVR that squarely targets people without a TV subscription. The new Roamio OTA only works with an antenna, and will start selling for just $50 at select Best Buy stores next month. The new TiVo OTA is basically the same as the existing entry-level model, including a 500 GB hard drive, four tuners and apps for streaming services like Netflix and Hulu Plus. What’s missing is the ability to connect to pay TV via Cablecard, so owners will have to stick with over-the-air reception. And as all TiVo’s the Roamio OTA also comes with significant monthly fees: Owners will have to pay $15 a month, and commit to at least one year. Lifetime service is available for a one-time fee of $500.
