At this point, most people should know how easy it is to cut the cord. A simple $24 HDTV antenna gets you all the live network TV you can handle in Full HD for free, and then a simple device like the newly discounted Roku Streaming Stick gives you access to as much streaming content as you can handle. The biggest downside when it comes to going this route is losing the DVR features you get with a cable box. That’s where the TiVo Roamio OTA 1TB DVR and TiVo Mini with IR/RF Remote Bundle comes into play. This brilliant box combo offers all of the guide features you’d get from any other TiVo box plus DVR features, and you’ll never have to pay a monthly fee.
