TiVo plans to launch a “Mega” DVR with 24 TB of storage capacity. That’s over 26,000 hours of SD-based TV, making your favorite episodes of Glee just a button-press away.

“Size matters. People hate being forced to delete cool stuff from their DVR before they want to or finding a TV show they had recorded is now gone. Now, with TiVo Mega they can always know their show or movie is still there to watch later,” said Ira Bahr, CMO at TiVo.

Offered in a rack-mount form factor, the TiVo Mega makes the solutions provided by cable and satellite providers look puny in size and function. The device includes six tuners so that users can record multiple content simultaneously. There’s also mobile connectivity so that tablets and smartphones can stream and download recorded content, and it has support for TiVo Mini, which brings the recorded content to all TVs in the house.

The TiVo Mega will have 24 TB of storage in RAID 5 and hot-swappable drives. The device will also come with the TiVo Slide Pro Remote, which consists of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and an RF signal. Content navigation will include a channel guide with filters, “What to Watch,” “Collections” and universal search across multiple content providers.

Additional features will include MoCA (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) and Ethernet connectivity and a free smartphone/tablet app for managing the DVR via remote Season Pass.

The TiVo Mega is expected to land during the first quarter of 2015. So far, the company hasn’t set a final price tag, but TiVo expects the pricing to be around $5,000, which includes product servicing throughout its lifetime.
