The first TiVo Series 2 DVR with 300 hours of recording capacity will be available this month at retailers nationwide.
The T2500 TiVo Series 2 DVR from Humax will debut along with an 80-hour unit, the T800, at a number of select independent retailers and regional chains nationwide. The T2500 and T800 will have a suggested retail price of $699 and $299 respectively.
Both models will run the TiVo service, giving subscribers the ability to control what they watch and when. With exclusive TiVo features including Season Pass and WishList searches, viewers can easily find and record their favorite shows whenever they are on -- even skipping repeat episodes.
TiVo recently announced that Series 2 subscribers can now take advantage of new Home Media features and online scheduling as part of the standard service package for $12.95 a month. These new features will enable subscribers to schedule recordings from any internet connection and move content between two or more TiVo Series 2 boxes in the home.
Other features include the ability to listen to digital music and view photos stored on their PC in the comfort of their living room on their home entertainment system. With the Home Media features built in to the service, subscribers can now enjoy other digital content the same way they enjoy television with the TiVo service.
