TiVo has a new option for people looking to ditch their cable providers once and for all.

The DVR maker unveiled on Wednesday the Roamio OTA 1TB for over-the-air programming. It can record up to four shows simultaneously from local networks available via an HDTV antenna. Its 1 terabyte of storage holds up to 150 hours of high-definition programs.

To further appeal to cord cutters, the Roamio OTA 1TB will not require a monthly subscription fee. It will launch May 2 for $399.

As with its other DVRs, the new model can access streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. It also features the company's newest viewing options, such as SkipMode that lets you bypass commercials by pressing a button.
