Premiere Elite records four shows simultaneously has 2TB hard drive available now

first_imgWith more and more content coming from digital streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, it’s almost easy to forget about technologies that relate to “the old way” of getting media (live TV). The most popular provider of digital video recorder hardware and service, TiVo, is dropping a high-end update to their line of DVR boxes today, the TiVo Premiere Elite.The new DVR box is a higher-end (and more expensive) model in the line that also includes the previous TiVo Premiere and Premiere XL. Having four tuners means it has the ability to record up to four programs at once, while watching a fifth. It can also store up to 300 hours of HD television, with its sizable 2TB hard drive. 300 hours means the Elite double what is available on the next highest-end TiVo box (though some models from competitors can store even more than that).The Premiere Elite, as with the other TiVo boxes, also offers access to streaming services like Netflix, Pandora, Hulu Plus, Blockbuster On-Demand, and Amazon Instant Video. Those without a gaming system who also subscribe to cable could potentially find a TiVo box to be one way of getting these services onto your TV.The Premiere Elite will work with digital cable connections (no analog cable, antennas, or satellite). For digital cable subscribers, it will replace your standard cable box. Subscriptions will run $20/month (with a one year agreement), or you can pay a one-time fee of $500 to subscribe for life.The TiVo Premiere Elite retails for $499.99 and is available now.last_img
