A Better Way to Watch over-the-air Free HDTV

As the cord-cutter movement continues to grow, consumers are turning to cheaper alternatives to the high price of cable TV.

TiVo’s Roamio is one such solution that puts you on your way to free over-the-air HD programming and was built for those looking for a cable experience on antenna TV. It works with any HD antenna, delivers one terabyte of recording capacity (150 HD hours), has SkipMode, QuickMode, OneSearch and also integrates all your streaming content from popular apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, VUDU, PLEX, YouTube, Pandora, Spotify, iHeart Radio and Yahoo. Best of all, it’s now available without a monthly TiVo service fee. Pay once for the cost of the box and enjoy all the free TV available in your viewing area.


Features List:


  • SkipMode will allow you to skip commercial breaks, and with a single press of a button, you can continue watching your recorded show. You can now watch only what you want to see and skip over the stuff you don’t. This feature is available on the top twenty most-watched networks.


  • QuickMode speeds up your shows by 30% without the high-pitched audio output that usually comes along with fast-forwarding video. This is a great feature for individuals who are pressed for time and want to enjoy their recorded programming as quickly as possible.


  • Find the shows and movies you want to watch fast and seamlessly with OneSearch by scanning multiple sources simultaneously by title, actor, director or keyword—and start watching in seconds.


  • OnePass tracks down every available season and the episode of a show—whether it’s on television or a streaming app—and creates a customizable watchlist for you. OnePass even automatically records upcoming episodes and adds them to your list.

Additionally, the TiVo Roamio contains a two-week program guide and the ability to record four shows at once. You can also control the TiVo Roamio with the TiVo Roamio mobile app for Android and IOS devices.

The Roamio uses Built-in Wi-Fi to wirelessly connect to your home’s network.

Includes RF remote control.
