    TiVO EDGE Antenna (OTA) 4 tuner 2TB HDD $349.99
    Annual service $69.95 ($6.95/mo) or All-In service $249.99

    TiVO EDGE Cable 6 tuner 2TB HDD $399.99
    Annual service $149.95 ($14.95/mo) or All-In service $549.99
    It’s made for cable subscribers and cord cutters alike.
    Both the cable and the antenna model boast easy one-screen navigation between apps and all major streaming services, live and online TV, and recordings. They both have superior Dolby audio and visual quality, along with all the fan favorites like Auto Skip/SkipMode, OnePass, and universal search.

    For cable TV enthusiasts, TiVo EDGE for cable provides a service unlike others and allows for a seamless cable experience on top of all of that. It includes a 2 TB hard drive (up to 300 HD hours) along with 6 tuners.Introducing TiVo EDGE - TiVo Blog

    For cord cutters, TiVo EDGE helps you find and record hundreds of free over-the-air HD shows that you can get with an antenna. Then you can skip eligible ads or set your TiVo EDGE to skip commercials automatically. It has a 2 TB hard drive (up to 300 HD hours) and 4 tuners. Think of all the money you’ll save having access to ad-skippable content from all of the major networks, every month. Make sure to pick up a good HD antenna (we recommend something like this).

    It's definately a big market (those who have both cable and streaming). I'm interested depending on the price and subscription fees.

    Interested, but ore-roll ads are a no for me. And while I skipped the Bolt generation, the number of problems with that gen that I see here (overheating and hard drive failures), I’ll wait and see reviews.

    I have a starting to fail Series 3 that is due for replacement.

    Their website has 4 tuners listed for the cable model when you click the Buy Now button., even though blog says its 6 and other places on website. So they have already messed up their advertising. Looks like no one proof read the website or they eliminated 2 tuners.
    Its 399.00. I ordered one because I was waiting to get rid of my last Comcast Motorola Box and its starting to have issues its so old. But they made me buy a monthly plan when I ordered this even though I have one with my Bolt. So do you have to pay a monthly plan for each main Tivo DVR? Are they not all on same account, one plan?

    If they have shut off the pre-roll ads on your current bolt do we think this will flow over to the Edge? Some are saying it is set at the account level so hopefully that is the case. I will wait and see before I buy. I want to replace a Romiao pro.

    Cable model is $950, after lifetime.

    Yea, I think I’ll just hang on to my Roamio Plus.

    The edge is available only on Tivo's website at this point, but yes I just bought one.
    I think the tuner number is just a website mistake. Otherwise why would it be 50.00 more than the OTA model. So when I get it Friday I expect 6 tuners. We will see.

    I would never do lifetime, tech changes way too fast to keep a dvr that long and who knows, Tivo could go under in a few years. Its too much money in my opinion.

    I think you can count on 6 tuners on a cablecard box. DolbyVision and DolbyAtmos as well. Cool.

    Like what? I have had my Roamio OTA for almost 3 years and I see no need to replace it. Here we are 3 years later, the Edge is now available and I see no technological advances that would entice me to upgrade.

    I do it for the resale value. Monthly payments are just throwing money away.

    But looking on eBay I won’t coup more than around half of the price of a lifetime Edge by selling my Roamio.

    Is this device TE4 only or can TE3 be used as the operating system?

    So they added Dolby Vision and Atmos, but stuck with the crap application platform. No thanks.

    I had a faint hope that the new ad injection schemes would lead to more reasonable device and service pricing, but doesn't look like that's happening. So we've got:
    • High device & service fee pricing
    • New ads appearing before recordings and probably more to come in various places in the UI
    • STILL no Roku, FireTV, AppleTV, etc. support
    • Standard TiVo OS and extremely limited app platform (No Youtube TV, Philo, PS Vue, etc.)
    • No ATSC 3 support for OTA
    • No on-demand support for most cable systems
    Hard pass.

    This is something of a TiVo tradition.

    Personally I think they scrapped the Roku, Fire and AppleTV apps and will just sell their own stick next year.

    They first announced them in Jan and their new CEO started in May. He could have changed course.
