TIVO INTRODUCES "ULTIMATE" DVR

TiVo, which pioneered home digital video recording but which has struggled against cable and satellite companies that offer their own DVRs to subscribers, has unveiled what could be regarded as the ultimate DVR — the TiVo Mega, which boasts 24 terabytes of recording space — enough to store three years of programming in standard definition or 24 weeks in high definition. TiVo said that it expects to deliver the recorder to consumers during the first quarter of next year for about $5,000. "Size matters. People hate being forced to delete cool stuff from their DVR before they want to or finding a TV show they had recorded is now gone," said TiVo marketing chief Ira Bahr in a statement. "Now, with TiVo Mega they can always know their show or movie is still there to watch later. TiVo Mega offers more than twelve times the storage of any cable or satellite DVR … (and) is the solution for the power user who wants to record everything." The unit permits users to record up to six programs simultaneously.
