TiVo ROAMIO HD Digital Video Recorder and Streaming Media Player


Watching Cable or TV with an HD Antenna these days without a DVR, is like eating peanut butter sandwiches without jelly. There are so many commercials on television, a DVR has become almost necessary to quickly fast forward through them and save precious time.

Tivo Roamio


A TiVo Roamio DVR will record and organize your favorite television series and then let you binge watch them all at once instead of having to wait months to finish watching an entire a season.

TiVo has been making DVRs for a long time now, and they still have one of the best, easy to use graphical user interface around. Their channel guide is well designed with an awesome search function and their DVRs just work without minimal user intervention.

We are excited to see that TiVo has included media streaming apps in their new line. Their two upper TiVo Roamio models also include both a DVR and content streaming both inside and outside of your home network to watch your favorite shows anywhere.

TiVo Roamio Features:

TiVo Roamios come in three different models with prices and features to fit almost every budget. The big difference between the three are storage capacity, built in streaming and number of tuners. Unfortunately none of these models will work with Satellite and only the lowest capacity TiVo Model TCD846500 supports recording from an HD Antenna.

Why TiVo choose to omit this feature from their larger units remains a mystery. Their base model still stores 75 hours of HD content. For cable cutters an HD antenna is a necessity. Unless you plan on keeping cable, this is the one we would recommend. If you plan on using it for streaming your content to other devices, the TCD846500 requires the additional purchase of TiVo Stream. (
Not required with the two upper tier models). This is an additional add-on box that let's you stream your content anywhere from an iPad, iPhone or Android hand held device.  Download the TiVo iOS App or Android App

TiVo Guide Service

TiVo charges a monthly fee for their guide service. Currently this is $14.99 a month with a one year commitment. They still offer a lifetime service which lasts the life of the box and is a one time payment of $499.99

While there are other options like building your own DVR, with a QAM tuner which can save the cost of the monthly guide. Nothing is as simple, intuitive and fun to use as a Tivo Roamio DVR, and for some this may well be worth the additional cost.
