Using the Roku for for streaming HBO Go and Showtime Anytime makes recording these channels on my TiVos unnecessary. Amazingly, the quality of the Roku streaming is far superior to Time Warner's overly compressed signal on these channels. I can dedicate my Premieres to just recording regular network and cable channels. If there were commercials, it would probably be different, because mostly the Roku won't let you fast-forward through them, but on these channels there are none, so that's not an issue. The Roku is a great companion for Tivo.
