Let's imagine that you want to cut the cord, but still want to watch local OTA programming. If you want a DVR with online features, you've only really got the option of buying TiVo's Roamio OTA. Unfortunately, that device comes with a $15 per month subscription that might bite if you're trying to save money. Thankfully, Channel Master understands the plight of the cost-conscious consumer, which is why it's adding YouTube to its flagship DVR, the, uh, DVR+. The addition is part of a software tweak that'll also see the box gain a series record feature that'll only preserve new episodes of your favorite show, saving you from deleting the after-hours repeat of that sitcom you love so much. The additions will drop at some point in November, so if you're looking for a dirt-cheap way to join the timeshift set, this might be a good place to start.
