Do you have deep pockets and love TV more than life? Well, CableTV.com is currently accepting donations and bribes, and—oh.
. . . Our lawyers have just informed us we cannot accept donations or bribes. So the next best thing to spend your vasts amounts of money on would be the TiVo EDGE
With this DVR, you can record six shows at once and save 450 hours of HD TV. That’s enough space for the 33-year run of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Like with the Hopper 3, you can download recordings, auto-skip commercials, voice-control through Alexa. You can also stream Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu, and more.
A fun feature of the EDGE is QuickMode™, which plays recorded shows 30% faster to help you binge-watch more in less time. Don’t worry—it will correct the audio, too, so you’re not left listening to squeaky voices.
You’ll need a CableCARD from your TV provider to decrypt its signal, which your cable company will cost you about $2–$4 a month for. Just keep in mind that EDGE is built to work with cable TV, not fiber or satellite TV providers.
On top of that fee and the initial cost of purchasing the DVR, TiVo charges a monthly service subscription of $14.99 or an annual plan of $149.99.
If you don’t wanna spend 400 bucks on a DVR, the TiVo BOLT VOX has less storage (500 GB–1 TB) but it’s $100–$200 cheaper than the EDGE.
Either way, the TiVo EDGE is an expensive option, but it’s worth it for TV fans who want all the best DVR features.
