Seven's TiVo gets more storage, video on demand

New 320GB model is the same price as the original 160GB TiVo HD

From 1 December, a TiVo HD set-top box will be available with a 320GB hard drive for $699. The original 160GB model will have its price cut by $100 to $599. The TiVo's distributor, Hybrid Television Services, is owned by the Seven Media Group which runs Australia's Channel Seven television network.

In addition, the 320GB model will be supplied with a Home Networking kit free of charge until 31 January; the kit retails for $199. The Home Networking kit allows TiVo users to transfer their video recordings to external devices like iPods.

The TiVo HD set-top box was criticised at launch for its small internal hard drive compared to competing digital television recorders.

Also from 1 December, the TiVo gains access to the company's proprietary video content portal, CASPA On-Demand. The portal provides new release and older movies, television shows, music videos, full concerts and artist interviews with both free and pay-per-view content available. Over 1000 hours of video will be available at launch. Additional content will continue to be added, with advertiser-supported free video becoming available from Q2 next year.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
