Santa Ana, Calif. — Humax USA said its first TiVo Series2 digital video recorder with 300 hours of recording capacity is shipping to retailers nationwide this month.
The T2500 TiVo Series2 DVR will debut along with an 80-hour TiVo unit, the T800, at a number of select independent retailers and regional chains nationwide, including Good Guys, Circuit City, J&R Music and Computer World, Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Electronics Expo and Vann’s. The T2500 and T800 will have suggested retail prices of $699 and $299, respectively.
With exclusive TiVo features including Season Pass and WishList searches, viewers can easily find and record their favorite shows whenever they’re on — even skipping repeat episodes.
TiVo recently announced that Series2 subscribers can now take advantage of new Home Media features and online scheduling as part of the standard service package for $12.95 per month.
These new features will enable subscribers to schedule recordings from any Internet connection and move content between two or more TiVo Series2 boxes in the home, such as the T2500 and T800.
Other features include the ability to listen to digital music and view photos stored on their PC in the comfort of their living room on their home entertainment system.
