Recording your favorite programing has gotten trickier in the last few years with updates to copyright laws and a crackdown on piracy. It’s still possible to record your favorite programing to watch at a later time with the devices mentioned below!
TiVo is a DVR system that allows you record favorite shows, and manage them how you need to. Currently, they have many different options available starting at an affordable price point. Please keep in mind there is a subscription fee associated with using their services. Some of the options we are currently offering on BestBuy.com have the subscription cost included for the first year.
A CableCARD may be necessary to get from your cable provider to be able to use your TiVo. Without a CableCARD you still are equipped to receive antenna and standard-definition analog cable channels.
More commonly referred to as a Sling Box, it does exactly what the product states it does. It slings your favorite recordings to an easy access app (which requires purchase) to watch your DVR or your TV recordings on the go. It’s the perfect must have for the family or individual that never stops.
A Tablo device is a great option as well if you just have basic cable with an HD antenna set-up. It’s similar to the Sling Media device where you can stream or record on your smartphone or computer for remote reviewing. Currently, Tablo offers two options one with a two tuner or four tuner.
Much like a Tablo, and TiVo this device allows you record your favorites plus pause live TV. If you'd like to cut down on the costs from your cable provider you're welcome to check out this units too. HDHomeRun offers different units for every lifestyle.
Please keep in mind you also have the option of streaming too. Most times the network the show airs on has an app you can login with your cable provider credentials to watch what you missed. Or you can purchase a subscription to apps like Hulu Plus or SlingTV to keep up with everything!
