TiVo’s Roamio OTA has long been the best DVR out there for cord-cutters who don’t want to ditch TV altogether. Now it’s added 500GB of extra storage, and cut the subscription fees. But it will cost you a pretty penny.
Roamio Plus and Pro users will now be able to stream their recorded content through the Apple TV. The updated TiVo app utilizes AirPlay over a user's local Wi-Fi network to allow for users to watch shows on multiple devices.
Announced today, TiVo Online allows users to search for what to watch across live TV, streaming services, and more, then watch it right there on the computer, including streaming live TV and DVR recordings.
TiVo devices have great DVR features and even support a good number of streaming services, but they aren't great at playing back local media. until next month at least. Plex comes to certain TiVo models on June 8.
Broadcom announced it will power TiVo's yet-to-be-released Ultra HD set-top box. TiVo and Broadcom will demonstrate the DVR this week, September 12-16, at IBC 2014 (International Broadcasting Convention) in Amsterdam.
