The TiVo Roamio is hands-down the best DVR for recording over-the-air TV, but its excellence comes at a great cost.
TiVo has announced its first DVR targeted solely at cord-cutters: the $50 Roamio OTA. The bad news? You still have to pay the $15/month service fee, and there's no "lifetime" option.
The DVR maker manages to make a dent in Europe by working with cable providers Com Hem, Virgin Media, and ONO.
Qplay's device and service will stream video playlists from the Internet onto your TV. But will it be enough to compete with the likes of Chromecast and Roku?
DVR maker has laid off "most" of its hardware engineers, according to Wired, but a spokesperson denies that the company is getting out of the hardware business.
Finally! TiVo and Android users will be able to stream live and recorded programming to their devices.
The three services broke ground and helped changed the way we watch TV. At CES 2014, they showed that they're still going strong.
Twitter takes your credit card as it expands into commerce, Facebook and Spotify put focus on video ads, and TiVo launches a DVR to record three years' worth of video.
If you're willing to pay the premium price, TiVo's do-it-all Roamio is the best cable DVR yet and an able whole-home TV solution.
