Channel Master, a leading manufacturer of OTA TV products, announced today that it has made an agreement with TiVo to bring TiVo’s DVR technology to OTA antenna users.
“One of the first things cord cutters discover is that they really need a DVR for the TV antenna in order to have the traditional viewing experience that they had with cable, and TiVo DVRs provide a premium solution for that need,” said Mike Lynch, chief strategy officer at Channel Master.
The partnership will begin this summer, with Channel Master launching the new 500GB TiVo Edge DVR. The new DVR will have the same functions and features of the 2TB version, including voice control, recommendations across both live and streaming content, 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD), Dolby Atmos, and Dolby Vision HDR.
Here’s what you’ll get with the TiVo Edge for antenna:
- One device for all your live, recorded and streaming TV
- Use with an HD antenna to optimize your over-the-air experience
- 500 GB of storage let you record up to 75 HD hours and 2 shows at once
- Available at Channel Master, starting at $199
“Channel Master brings over 70 years of over-the-air reception knowledge and expertise to the table,” said Matt Milne, chief revenue officer at TiVo. “We’re excited to partner with Channel Master to provide TiVo customers with the focused support and guidance that is critical for delivering free, live broadcast TV on our Next-Generation platform.”
