Advertisements A not-so-brief summary on my situation... We currently are cord cutters, have been for two years. We have Netflix+Hulu on an Apple TV 4 and a Winegard Amped Flat Indoor Antenna. However, our antenna reception is getting worse so we will be installing an outdoor antenna soon. However, we want to get a DVR to make our OTA investment worth it. We have been using WMC on and off for the past 2 years and like it. However, we hate having to switch inputs to stream. In addition, that $11 a month for Hulu is getting a little long in the tooth and we only watch it for Prime Time TV (and Seinfeld). Our thinking is that if we can record all the old reruns that we watch as well as record our Prime Time TV we can cut Hulu. The three solutions we are looking at are WMC, TiVo, and Tablo. WMC we are familiar with and like the channel guide (renaming and changing channel numbers), recordings, and the feel of an actual cable box. We don't like the lack of integrated streaming and the slow response time using a cheap single-tuner Chinese stick. Tablo looks nice but we would have to access it through Apple TV. While this means no change of inputs it is really a half-assed approach to DVR and we might as well just stick with streaming services. Which brings us to TiVo. First of all, I LOVE TiVo's remote. I don't know what it is about those buttons but it's just so satisfying. The DVR first, streaming second approach is nice as opposed to the opposite with Tablo (and no streaming at all on WMC). And it feels like a real cable box, unlike Tablo which has a guide and recordings view- that's it. As for price, Tablo for 4 tuners will run us $300, and a monthly fee of $5. Over 2 years that's $420. WMC- we need to buy another tuner card ($100), and it is essentially a dead platform. Cheaper, but no streaming. TiVo Roamio OTA lifetime is $400 and no monthly fees. Expensive but our favorite platform. At this point we are looking at WMC and TiVo. WMC is dead, and we would need to buy another tuner card. Also no streaming. But it is cheaper than TiVo by quite a bit, and we are familiar with the look and feel. TiVo costs a lot more, but we can get Netflix and Amazon integrated and it's less DIY than WMC. So for a family that uses Netflix for original shows and old series, Hulu for what we missed last night and Seinfeld, and OTA for our news and network programming, which is the best? Can we cut Hulu and just record what Primetime TV we missed? Or is that not cost effective? Appreciate any and all answers. Thanks!
