Since cancelling our cable, there is one thing I miss having – our DVR. Streaming services are great but sometimes I don’t like waiting days or a week to watch the latest shows. Sometimes I want to watch it an hour after it airs. Or, sometimes I want to watch shows that aren’t available on streaming. But having an antenna instead of cable limits your choices and services.

At least it has in the past.

But TiVo has made it possible for us to have everything we want with the flexibility of a 2-tuner DVR and access to our favorite streaming services. TiVo also provides flexibility for the modern TV viewer by integrating wi-fi and mobile devices with TiVo services.

Television viewing has changed so much in the last few years and TiVo has provided a way for the modern family to watch their favorite content when, where and how they want.
