Boxee Cloud DVR Delivers Live TV and DVR for $99

Having an over-the-air antenna takes some of the sting out of dumping pay TV. However, a lot of those penny-pinchers are having a bigger problem saying goodbye to that beloved DVR. After all, having a DVR allows you to watch what you want whenever you want.

Last year, Channel Master introduced the Channel Master TV, which provides DVR service to OTA users. TiVo followed shortly after, with its TiVo Premiere HD DVR. We liked what both of these boxes had to offer (which you can see in our Channel Master TV Review and TiVo Premiere HD DVR Review). However, the problem with both boxes is that they weren't very cheap -- which is sort of the idea when you cut the cord to pay TV. Oh sure, either option could save you in the long run. However, the new Boxee Cloud DVR is designed to be cheap from the get-go.

Previously known as the Boxee TV, the new Boxee Cloud DVR is a mere $99 and is designed to work with your OTA antenna. The biggest perk is that initial cost. There are also a few interesting add-ons, but those will cost you.



Basic service is absolutely free, with a few restrictions. For instance, Basic users can find and record programs via free channel listings, but this option only allows for recordings to be stored for up to 90 days. That may work out well for your viewing needs, until you realize that you'll only get up to 5 hours of DVR playback each month.

If you're willing to pay $9.99 per month, the All-access service allows for unlimited DVR space, unlimited viewing, and the option to stream all of that content to anything with a web connection.That means that All-access users can tap into live and recorded TV from smartphones and/or tablets. It's going to be hard not to get hooked on that type of service, especially since each Boxee Cloud DVR comes with a free All-access trial.

To use the Boxee Cloud DVR, you'll need an HDTV, an HDMI cable and a broadband Internet connection. Once everything is hooked up, the box also provides access to a slew of popular apps, including Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, Pandora, and several others.

Boxee is currently selling the Boxee Cloud DVR, but says that Cloud DVR coverage is currently limited. At last peek, it was only available in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
