TiVo has revealed its latest DVR model, the appropriately titled TiVo Mega. Fully living up to its name, the mammoth-sized device comes with 24TB of recording space letting customers save around 26,000 hours of TV!
"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. Now, with TiVo Mega they can always know their show or movie is still there to watch later," said Ira Bahr, CMO at TiVo. "TiVo Mega offers more than twelve times the storage of any cable or satellite DVR. TiVo Mega is the solution for the power user who wants to record everything. We salute you and enjoy!"
The TiVo Mega uses a 24 Terabyte RAID 5 HDD and comes complete with six tuners for recording different programming at the same time. TiVo Mini support is also included and customers can stream live and recorded content to their mobile devices. In total, the DVR is capable of storing 26,000 hours of standard definition material and 4,000 hours of high definition material.
Fellow TV show hoarders can expect to get their hands on the TiVo Mega in the first quarter of 2015. A final price has not been announced, but the company expects the model to retail for around $5,000.
