Losing your DVR is the worst thing about cutting the cord, but there are a number of different DVR boxes that work with OTA TV. In fact, here’s one that only costs $40. That’s a nice option for people who only want basic DVR functionality, but there’s a much better option out there for people looking to spice things up a bit. The Tablo DUAL OTA DVR for Cord Cutters packs a number of features you won’t find on most other OTA DVR boxes, such as built-in Wi-Fi and whole-home compatibility so you can watch your recorded shows on any TV in your house. And while some lesser DVRs only include basic playback, Tablo’s DVR lets you rewind and fast forward so you can skip commercials!
