Now there’s a special TiVo digital video recorder just for cord-cutters.

The new TiVo Roamio OTA (over-the-air) DVR records up to four local TV broadcasts at the same time. The $49.99 DVR, which will be rolling out in select Best Buy stores in mid-September, stores 75 hours of HD programming.

Already-available TiVo DVRs can record from an antenna and a pay TV service, but those start at $199.99. This new DVR is TiVo’s lowest-priced product ever.

For now, TiVo plans to make the new OTA DVR available on a limited basis in select markets. The TiVo service, which provides a customizable program guide and incorporates services such as Netflix, requires a one-year commitment at $14.99 per month.
