“While so many people love TV, they have no idea what TiVo can do for their love of TV. TiVo Roamio is so much more than just the best DVR, it’s for people who are all about loving their TV – that’s why we call our latest offering Roamio,” said Tom Rogers, TiVo’s president and CEO.

“Now, wherever you roam your TiVo Roamio is there. In the next room, in the kitchen, in a hotel room across the world – connecting you right to your living room TV recordings, so you can get them immediately wherever you are. Moreover, you can get all your regular cable channels, the best DVR features available, all combined with favorite streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube in one box, using one remote. With up to six tuners, tons more space to record your shows so on those Sunday nights when all the great TV is on you can capture it to watch throughout the week. Take every box or device out there – Roku, Apple TV, Slingbox, Google TV, your standard cable box – all rolled into one. This is quite simply the best TiVo we have ever made and is truly for people who love TV.”
