TiVo has officially announced the launch of its next generation TiVo product – the TiVo Premiere Elite (previously leaked through FCC fillings and slides). If you’re thinking to yourself, why do we need yet another TiVo? Well, the Premiere Elite will pack four tuners – which means that you’ll be able to record up to four programs at once and still watch something that’s previously recorded on the device at the same time. Talk about never missing your favorite program again!
The TiVo Premiere Elite will also pack a 2TB of storage space – that’s double the amount of the TiVo Premiere XL, which means you’ll get up to 300 hours of HD programming. It also features support for on-demand streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Blockbuster and Amazon Instant Video. It also has MoCA (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) in addition to regular Ethernet connectivity. You’ll still need an adapter for wireless connectivity though.
No word on pricing or availability, but it should be out later this year. It sure sounds like a worthy successor to the current TiVo Premiere XL – what do you think?
