The new TiVo BOLT is bringing it all together, with unified television.
The TiVo BOLT is the shortest distance between you and your entertainment, because it combines all your options into a single box. No more switching devices, toggling inputs or juggling remotes. Whether it’s from TV, available on-demand libraries or streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime, HULU, YouTube or Pandora, TiVo BOLT delivers it all in an instant.
Find movies and shows with unified search.
OneSearch™ scours multiple platforms like TV and Netflix simultaneously, so your search experience is always fast, simple and seamless. No more drilling down into each app and doing multiple hunt-and-seek searches. Find shows and movies by title, actor, director or keyword—and start watching in seconds.
Skip commercials with the new SkipMode™.
No more waiting for commercial breaks to be over. With a single press of a button, you can continue watching your recorded show. SkipMode works with the top 20 channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, AMC Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, TBS, FX, TLC, History Channel, TNT, The CW, Food Network, USA, Bravo, ABC Family, Syfy, Lifetime and HGTV.
QuickMode™ speeds up your shows by 30%.
QuickMode lets you zip through your recorded shows—and shows with a buffer—30% faster than normal speed with pitch-corrected audio. You zoom along and nobody sounds like a caffeinated chipmunk. It’s the ideal way to power through slow-moving news shows, sports and long-winded political debates.
Record up to 4 shows at one time and watch in 4K.
TiVo BOLT can handle the biggest entertainment jones. It records up to four shows at once and provides up to 1 TB of recording capacity—enough for roughly 150 hours of HD programming. Need even more? Add an external hard drive or a TiVo-ready NetGear ReadyNAS. And if you’ve got a new 4K Ultra HD TV, then get excited, because TiVo BOLT is 4K-compatible right out of the box.
Get the most out of your cable service with our best box ever
Why Is It Better?
Only TiVo delivers all the entertainment you love from TV and the web in one box. Yes, it’s the most advanced DVR ever built, but it’s so much more. It’s all the TV, movies, music and web you want, on your TV.
Does it work with my setup?
How Does It Work?
TiVo Bolt connects to your existing cable service and replaces your old cable box with a stunning HD DVR experience. A CableCARD you get from your cable company plugs into the bottom of your TiVo Bolt and delivers your cable channels. Premiere does the rest, delivering on-demand movies, web videos, music and more through your broadband Internet connection.
TiVo® Bolt will support analog cable out of the box. A single M-CardTM (multi-stream CableCARD) adds dual-tuner recording of digital and HD cable channels.
Types of CableCARDs: Multi-Stream and Single-Stream
TiVo Bolt houses one CableCARD slot for an M-Card located on the back of the DVR. In your upcoming installations, you may come across prior versions of TiVo DVRs. These came with two slots (hidden behind a door on the lower front of the DVR) for CableCARDs — the TiVo HD and HD XL could function with either one M-Card™ or two single-stream CableCARDs (S-Cards), while the Series3™ could only function with two single-stream CableCARDs. All major cable companies are mandated by federal law to provide the correct type of CableCARD decoders to cable subscribers upon request.
Is a CableCARD Really Needed?
If your client does not subscribe to expanded digital cable service, a CableCARD may not be required at all. TiVo Premiere DVRs work with any analog cable (i.e. basic or expanded basic) source right out of the box and, of course, with ATSC antennas (for standard and high definition over-the-air signals). However, in order to receive certain HD and digital channels from the cable provider, a CableCARD is required.
How Do I Get and Install a CableCARD?
Your customer will need to request a CableCARD from their cable company. Most will not issue or release the card without the customer’s personal authorization, and some cable companies actually require that one of their technicians come to the home and install the card. However, many cable companies will simply hand over the card for customer installation. Remind the customer that they can actually return the old cable box or DVR and that the CableCARD rental fee, which ranges from free to $11/month, is less expensive than the embedded cable box rental fee they are currently paying.
Activating the card:
With the TV on and the cable input connected to the TiVo box, insert the CableCARD into the CableCARD slot (with TiVo Premiere, it’s on the back of the box).
When the decoder information screen appears, select “configure CableCARD” and then “CableCARD menu”.
Call the cable company (if you haven’t already) for card initialization — you’ll need to provide them with the appropriate numbers from the configuration screen. Be sure to inform the cable company operator that you’re activating a TiVo DVR.
Looking for a simple way to get your video output to multiple displays for your installation?
TiVo has you covered by making all three video outputs – HDMI, component, and composite, simultaneously “hot”.
This means you can feed one TiVo box to up to three different displays without the need for splitters – and if you DO use splitters, the TiVo box carries support for up to 16 HDMI licenses.
Enjoy all of your TiVo content via any video output type simultaneously.
