You’ve probably heard of TiVo more than once before. It used to be one of the top dogs when it comes to set-top boxes. It still us, to be sure, but albeit lower in popularity now given the surfeit of set-top boxes. Not to mention the variety of streaming services available at every cord-cutter’s disposal nowadays.
But TiVo is still the best device out there when it comes to navigating through broadcast television and having more fine-tuned controls with regard to playback, and now the company is making it even better. For the first time ever, TiVo has released a set-top box that offers integrated voice control courtesy of Amazon Alexa. It’s called the TiVo BOLT VOX 500 GB DVR & Streaming Media Player, now available to purchase from Amazon for $200.
TiVo’s latest set-top box marks the debut of the Voice Remote feature, which lets you instantly search across your live TV, DVR recordings, and streaming content, making it easier to find what you’re looking for. It also integrates all your favorite streaming apps, like HBO Go, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, and more, so you don’t have to switch inputs, remotes, or devices. The set-top box supports 4K right out of the box, which should work perfectly with your 4K TV.
The only downside is the fact that TiVo service subscription is required. You can choose between a monthly service plan at $15 and a yearly plan at $150. You’ll be able to record up to four shows at once, which maxes out at 75 hours of HD content.BUY IT HERE
