TiVo Roamio OTA review: Finally, TiVo makes a DVR for cord-cutters

TiVo's latest is the best over-the-air DVR ever made, but the $15 monthly service fee (combined with the lack of a Lifetime Service option) means you're trading a low upfront price for some high long-term costs.

Pros
  • Low initial cost
  • No cable subscription required
  • Streaming options and four OTA HD tuners
  • Same software and accessories as the regular Roamio
Cons
  • $15 monthly service fee, with no Lifetime Service option
  • No HDMI-CEC
