By Tara Seals, TMCnet Contributor

TiVo (News - Alert) has launched the TiVo Roamio DVR, which acts as a gateway for live and on-demand TV, DVR functionality and streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube (News - Alert).

"While so many people love TV, they have no idea what TiVo can do for their love of TV,” said Tom Rogers, TiVo president and CEO. “TiVo Roamio is so much more than just the best DVR, it's for people who are all about loving their TV -- that's why we call our latest offering Roamio.”

He added, "Now, wherever you roam, your TiVo Roamio is there. In the next room, in the kitchen, in a hotel room across the world -- connecting you right to your living room TV recordings, so you can get them immediately wherever you are…Take every box or device out there -- Roku, Apple TV, Slingbox, Google (News - Alert) TV, your standard cable box -- all rolled into one. This is quite simply the best TiVo we have ever made and is truly for people who love TV."

The TiVo Roamio DVR Series includes three models: TiVo Roamio ($199.99), TiVo Roamio Plus ($399.99) and TiVo Roamio Pro ($599.99). Roamio features four or six tuners and storage ranging from 75 hours to 450 hours of HD content. TiVo Roamio also includes integrated wireless and TiVo Stream functionality in certain models.

Soon, an out-of-home streaming functionality will allow subscribers to stream TV and recorded shows to iPad or iPhone (News - Alert). The built-in TiVo Stream feature allows users to connect to their Roamio over Wi-Fi and watch recordings and cable channels.
