The new add-on works with all of TiVo's Premiere boxes.
Just a month ago, TiVo was showing off the TiVo Mini at the 2013 International CES. This add-on works with select Premiere boxes to put one of the DVR’s four tuners anywhere you watch TV. Now, someone else is showing off the TiVo Mini—Suddenlink.
According to Zatz Not Funny, the cable provider is extending the DVR extender box to its customers on a rental basis as part of its “Any-Room DVR” package. It will be available for $6 to $11 per month, depending on the subscriber’s location and package.
The TiVo Mini will provide both live and recorded TV and other media from the TiVo Premiere. That includes on-demand programming, Pandora, YouTube, and more. It specifically works with the Premiere 4, Premiere XL4/Elite, or Premiere Q.
TiVo won’t be launching the device at retail for a few months.
