Additional Terms and Restrictions

TiVo Service Subscriptions:

• No-commitment monthly service is available with the purchase of a new full-priced TiVo device directly from TiVo (call TiVo Customer Service, at 877-289-8486, for more information). No-commitment monthly service is available with the purchase of a previously activated TiVo device from a third party.

• With respect solely to any TiVo BOLT, TiVo BOLT VOX or TiVo Roamio DVR which is eligible for, and on which you have obtained, either an annual service plan or a monthly service plan (but not an All-In plan): your service plan includes, at no additional charge, an enhanced limited warranty (known as "Continual Care") for the full, uninterrupted duration of your annual or monthly TiVo service subscription. With Continual Care, and for a cost of $49.00 (plus shipping and any applicable taxes) after ninety (90) days from your purchase date, you can exchange a defective or inoperative TiVo BOLT, TiVo BOLT VOX or TiVo Roamio DVR for a repaired, renewed or comparable product (at TiVo's discretion). The exchange exclusions and restrictions contained in the TiVo DVR Limited Warranty continue to apply; please visit Limited Warranty Info for details.

• Under certain TiVo offers or promotions, not all service plan options may be available (e.g., a monthly plan; an annual service plan; an All-In plan). Call TiVo Customer Service (at 877-367-8486) for details on any such current promotional offers.

• All features, functionality and offers are subject to change or withdrawal at any time without notice. See the TiVo User Agreement (at www.tivo.com/legal/terms) and TiVo Privacy Policy (at www.tivo.com/legal/privacy) for additional terms and conditions that apply to your subscription to the TiVo service and use of a TiVo device.

• TiVo devices do not work with satellite. The TiVo Premiere 4/XL4/Elite DVRs and the TiVo Roamio Pro/Plus DVRs are intended for use with digital cable systems only and do not work with external cable boxes, analog cable, or over-the-air antennas. The TiVo BOLT does not work with external cable boxes or analog cable.

1 Monthly TiVo service subscriptions will continue after the 1-year commitment period at the same monthly rate (unless we notify you otherwise) until you call TiVo Customer Service (at 877-367-8486) to cancel your TiVo service.

2 Unless you call TiVo Customer Service (at 877-367-8486) to cancel your TiVo service prior to the fulfillment of any annual service period, your annual TiVo service plan will automatically renew for another successive 1-year period; and unless we notify you otherwise, your TiVo service subscription will renew at the same annual rate. All prepaid annual service fees are non-refundable.

3 An All-In plan (a) lasts for the lifetime of your TiVo device (not your lifetime), (b) is not transferrable to another TiVo device (except in certain warranty replacement/repair cases), (c) does not guarantee access to any specific feature or functionality as all features and functionality are subject to change or withdrawal at any time without notice, and (d) may exclude certain TiVo offerings (e.g., for third-party content, particular applications, cloud-based services, etc.) for which TiVo subsequently may elect (in its sole discretion) to charge separately and which are not made generally available to all customers who have activated TiVo service on a particular TiVo device model.

30-Day money back guarantee

TiVo offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, including complimentary return shipping (from within the 48 contiguous United States).

Customer Reviews

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I purchased a TiVo VOX Remote to use with my Roamio OTA. How do I use it?

    Simply press the blue VOICE button and use natural speech to command your TiVo. Just say “I want James Bond movies with Daniel Craig” or “Show me Batman by Christopher Nolan” or other similar commands to easily find shows and movies by title, actor or director, all by speaking into your remote!

    Note: To use the VOX Remote with Roamio devices, you must plug the included Bluetooth® dongle into the USB port on the rear of the Roamio. Then, the remote must be paired with the Roamio to enable advanced functions like voice control.

  • Will my TiVo Roamio OTA DVR work with my HD antenna?

    You bet! The TiVo Roamio OTA works with any HD digital antenna.

  • What type of signal sources are TiVo Roamio OTA DVRs compatible with?

    TiVo Roamio OTA receives signals from a digital HD antenna. It is not compatible with cable, Google Fiber, Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-Verse or satellite systems.

  • If I use TiVo Roamio OTA with an antenna, do the stations I receive cost me anything?

    Nope, they’re absolutely free. Here’s how it works. Roamio OTA has four ATSC tuners that allow it to record up to four channels at once from digital over-the-air broadcasts in full HD clarity. ATSC broadcasts are completely free and are accessible by using any HD antenna, which are available for purchase at retail stores or from tivo.com.

  • Is there a service fee or commitment?

    No. Never. Roamio OTA is sold with an All-In service plan, which is included for the life of the product. There is no additional service fee or commitment. If you use streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, those fees are not included and must be purchased separately from the provider.

  • How much can I record with my TiVo Roamio OTA?

    Lots. You can record up to four shows at once. The TiVo Roamio OTA’s 1TB of recording capacity allows you to record up to 150 hours of HD programming. That’s enough for everybody in a crowded house to feel good about having enough room for their must-see shows.

  • What is SkipMode™? Does it come with TiVo Roamio OTA? And how does it help me avoid commercials?

    Any recorded show enabled with the SkipMode feature will display a SKIP icon next to the episode title in My Shows. When a commercial break starts, just press the blue VOICE button and tell TiVo to “Skip it” or hit the green SKIP button on your remote, and you'll be on the other side of those commercials in the blink of an eye. If you hit the button during a program, you'll skip past your show and through the next commercial break, which is great for bypassing the dull parts you don't want to see. Although not all shows are available with the SkipMode feature, we've taken great pains to enable SkipMode on many of the most popular channels. For more information, see channel details.

  • What about QuickMode™? Does TiVo Roamio OTA have that, too? And what does it do exactly?

    Some programming is nice to watch at a faster pace—news, baseball, soccer and political speeches come to mind. When activated, QuickMode plays your recorded shows at a 30% faster rate, while also keeping the audio from getting all squirrely on you. This pitch-corrected audio lets you comfortably speed through content and still understand what everyone is saying. You can watch a 60-minute show in approximately 40 minutes. (And if you're skipping commercial breaks as well, you're moving even faster.)

  • Can I use my mobile device to control my TiVo Roamio OTA? Can I schedule a recording while I’m away from home?

    The free TiVo app for tablets and smartphones is a great way to keep your TiVo Roamio OTA at your fingertips. Available for both iOS and Android, the app lets you see what’s on tonight, schedule a recording, manage upcoming tasks or search for a show you just heard about at work. You can control this stuff from anywhere you have a connection to the Internet. This handy app even has a remote control feature if you prefer controlling your TiVo Roamio OTA on the couch with your mobile device.

  • What happens if my TiVo Roamio OTA breaks?

    All TiVo DVRs are covered by the standard TiVo DVR warranty. Please see the TiVo DVR limited warranty for details. TiVo also offers two (2) year and three (3) year extended warranty plans, which may be purchased within ninety (90) days from the earlier of the DVR purchase date or TiVo service activation date.

  • How does the money back guarantee work?

    TiVo offers a 30-day, money-back guarantee that applies only to your initial TiVo service activation. As long as you cancel service within 30 days (usually from when your order ships) and then promptly return the TiVo box or accessory (undamaged and with all its contents), you're entitled to a full refund. Because we know most buyers become addicted within the first 30 days and are unsure how they ever lived without TiVo, we'll even cover the return shipping charge (within the 48 contiguous United States). See here for details.

  • What retail stores sell TiVo products?

    Best Buy is a national retailer that sells TiVo Roamio OTA in their core stores. Amazon.com, bestbuy.com and weaknees.com are national online retailers that sell TiVo Roamio DVRs. In various regions of the U.S., TiVo Roamio OTA may also be purchased from Crutchfield and other leading consumer electronics retail locations. Of course, you can always shop for and purchase your TiVo DVR right here at tivo.com.

  • Does the TiVo Roamio OTA have an HDMI port?

    All TiVo Roamio DVRs provide an HDMI output. TiVo Roamio OTA supports up to 16 simultaneous HDMI connections when connected to a compatible HDMI switch.
