TiVo Bolt DVR streams 4K and streamlines the way you watch TV

DVRs
[MUSIC] Maybe you hate your cable provider's DVR, or you're ready to cut cable out of your life entirely or maybe you're somewhere in between. Whatever the case, TIVO's latest DVR aims to please all the the above. The box can record up to four shows at once from traditional over-the-air broadcast Or you can get a cable card from your provider to get all the cable service you want. Over the Top content is available, too, from Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, and others. And if you have a 4K TV, it supports ultra high definition streams from Netflix and YouTube, with Amazon Prime in the works. TiVo's one search lets you find programs across all available services, And its one-past feature combines both recording and streaming options in one folder so you can always see what's available. A new skip mode lets you jump over commercial breaks for recorded prime-time shows with one button press while a QuickMode speeds up playback with pitch-corrected audio so speech sounds normal. Performance has been improved as well, including app launching, which takes just a few seconds and you first open one, but near instantly after that, making switching between TV and streaming services fast. The bolt also supports TiVo. There's many extenders if you want to turn the bolt into a whole host solution and the TiVo mobile app can be used to mirror content to an Apple TV or Amazon Fire TV. Lastly its built in 80211 AC wireless can stream to a smartphone or tablet on your home network and eventually out of home as well. So far in our testing everything works as promised so the downside for most people will be cost. The bolt is priced at $300 with 500 gigs of storage or $400 with 1000 gigs of storage. That includes a year of service, but when that ends, it's $15 a month or $150 a year or $600 for the life of the product. You own the box though, which means you Who aren't tied to a cable provider. You can read more about the DVR on cnet.com, but if you're looking for an all in one solution, this certainly seems like a good place to start. I'm Josh Goldman with CNET, thanks for watching.
