Even with today’s cheap hard drives, most DVR boxes end up running out of space rather quickly. There’s just an abundance of (questionably intelligent) programming, and a seemingly very eager public. Deleting shows to make space for new ones is commonplace, but TiVo will have none of that. The company is now offering the TiVo Mega to customers: a giant 24TB box that can fit up to 26,000 hours of content (4,000 hours in HD)! With its 6 built-in tuners, you can record up to 5 shows while watching a sixth, all the while streaming to a host of devices, whether they’re mobiles or standalone TVs. By using a RAID 5 configuration with hot-swappable drives, you can be sure that your shows won’t disappear even if a drive does end up failing.
Owning the biggest, baddest DVR on the market won’t come cheap. The TiVo Mega is expected to be available in Q1 2015 for about $5,000.
