In this video, The Handyguys review the TiVO Roamio. This device helps to eliminate excess cords and cables in your TV. The TiVO Roamio is compatible with devices that are open the box, plug, and play. The main pro of the TiVO Roamio vs. any other plug in antenna that provides HD content, is that the TiVO allows you to DVR content.
TiVO Roamio Review
The TiVO Roamio is a one time purchase. It will DVR your favorite shows, allow for streaming, and has an antenna signal guide. In past episodes, The Handyguys have tested out other streaming services for TV including the Roku, Apple TV, Google’s device, and the Amazon Fire. All of these streaming devices have nice interfaces, but The Handyguys’ favorite is the Roku due to its selection of apps. However, the Roku does not include over the air TV and sometimes you may have 2 devices that need to be plugged in. This is where the TiVO Roamio is helpful.
The TiVO Roamio can handle over the air TV and programming. Unlike the Roku, you are unable to stream news on the Roamio. The Roamio is more expensive than the Roku, but as previously mentioned, does allow for DVR. The Roamio comes with a guide to all of its channels as well as what’s coming up. You can elect to record a how once or continuously. It even has a feature called OnePass where you can record new episodes and gather older seasons that may be housed on a streaming service that you are logged into on the device. You still need to have these streaming subscriptions as they do not come with the TiVO Roamio itself.
The TiVO Roamio is an all-encompassing device if you are looking for 1 option to house your over the air TV, DVR, and streaming needs. Check it out at The Handyguys website.
