Say it. Find it. Watch it. Simple.

The TiVo Roamio OTA VOX and TiVo VOX Remote let you use your voice to change channels and search across live TV, your DVR recordings and popular streaming apps to easily find and watch what you’re looking for. Just say, “Change channels to NBC,” or “Show me Batman by Christopher Nolan,” or other similar commands to easily find networks, shows and movies by title, actor or director, all by simply speaking into your remote. Less searching and more watching, it’s what TiVo’s all about.

Use your voice and watch them all.

Signature TiVo features, like OneSearch™, OnePass™ and SkipMode®, give your voice show-finding, time-saving super powers. OneSearch scours multiple platforms and services – like Netflix, Amazon Video, Hulu, YouTube and more - so finding what you want is always fast, simple and seamless. Say, “Create OnePass” plus the name of your favorite TV series and get a customized watchlist of every available season and episode — no matter if they’re on live TV or a streaming app. And for the ultimate in awesome, just say, “Skip it,” and SkipMode instantly zips past commercial breaks for SkipMode-enabled recordings.

Advanced control that goes beyond cable and satellite.

With an HD antenna and TiVo Roamio OTA VOX, you get access to an uncompressed HDTV signal that’s often better than cable or satellite, without having to sacrifice features, variety or quality. In addition to TiVo’s enhanced user experience, Roamio OTA VOX also delivers must-have conveniences like a two-week program guide, the ability to record up to four shows at once, and watch-and-control mobile capabilities. Want to ditch your cable, but still get the good stuff? We’ve got you covered.
