This coming September Tivo will be introducing a new flagship set-top box called the Tivo Premiere Elite equipped with four tuners. But unlike the Tivo Premiere the Tivo Premiere Elite is restricted to digital cable broadcasts and no analogue channels will be supported. To sum up Digital Cable (via CableCards + decoder), or Verizon’s FiOS will work fine but analog cable, ATSC, satellite and AT&T U-Verse will not.
The new Tivo Premiere Elite will also be equipped with THX sound, 1080p video output and 2TB of storage capable of holding around 300 hours of programmes and movies.
When the new set-top box arrives in September it will come with support for RTI, Creston and Control4 remotes and include Netflix, Hulu and others, all for a price of $500.
