If you're a cord cutter and you plan on buying the base model Roamio for use with your OTA antenna as this cnet reviewer[youtu.be] recommended back in June, starting on September 14th you'll have the option of buying a OTA-only model for $50 at Best Buy. It has all the same specs, but leaves off the cablecard compatibility. https://www.tivo.com/discover/antenna
Four tuners may seem like a lot for OTA TiVo, but you'd be surprised how crowded it gets in primetime, especially if you add a couple minute buffer on start time and end time, or even a 30-60 minute buffer at the end of live sports.
Just throwing that out there. I won't be buying one of these because I already spent time time, money, and effort to set up a 6-tuner Windows Media Center box. I can definitely see the appeal of this more appliance-like device with lower barrier to entry, fewer maintenance hassles, and better energy efficiency, even if it does require the $14.99/mo service fee.
