New TiVo DVRs Top Cable Efforts

To paraphrase Pat Benatar: Put another notch in TiVo Inc.'s lipstick case.

The DVR pioneer launched three new set-tops this week, and the high end of the product line puts cable's notion of TV Everywhere to shame. In particular, the two higher-end TiVo Roamio Plus and TiVo Roamio Pro boxes both enable streaming of live and recorded programming to multiple video screens inside or outside

the home. Users can also download shows to an iOS device for offline viewing, and TiVo says Android support is on the way.
