Can I use the DVR without TiVo Service?
*All fields required unless otherwise indicated.
A TiVo Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is intended for use only with a paid subscription to the TiVo service. Without the TiVo service:
- A TiVo DVR has extremely limited functionality and can only be used to watch live TV or watch previously recorded shows.
- No smart automatic-recording service or Trickplay functionality is represented or should be expected.
Receipt of TiVo service is subject to the terms of the TiVo Service Agreement. TiVo service is accessed through a standard telephone line or broadband connection and is available as a local call in most areas. In some areas, local and long-distance toll charges may apply.
NOTE: For more information about the availability of TiVo service outside the United States, go to In Which Countries Is the TiVo Service Available?
