TiVo's Multi-Room DVR Debuts Through RCN

It starts rolling out in Washington D.C. and will move forward from there.

The TiVo Premiere Q and TiVo Preview are the result of quite a bit of work and should be causing a great deal of excitement for those that have access. The combination of the two allows for whole-home enjoyment of a single DVR, with full functionality to each room.

For $29.99 a month, RCN customers can get a Premiere Q and a Preview. The Premiere is the more traditional of the two units - it works just like any other TiVo. The Preview goes elsewhere in your house and allows you access to content from the Premiere.

At launch, the Preview will lack a bit of functionality, like pausing live TV, rewinding and fast fowarding. That should all be ready to go in early 2012, according to RCN.
