TiVo introduces 4K, ad-skipping Bolt DVR

Tivo _BOLT_RightFrontTiVo has introduced the TiVo Bolt, a new 4K-compatible DVR that lets users skip through advertising breaks in recorded shows.

TiVo said that the SkipMode feature lets viewers “skip entire commercial breaks, in a single bound, at the press of a button” and claimed that the Bolt is “born to binge, unifying the source of any available program.”

The device draws together available programming from cable, video-on-demand, over-the-air and over-the-top sources and offers universal search across these.

A QuickMode also lets viewers watch recorded shows 30% faster than they were intended to be viewed “while maintaining perfect audio”

“Bolt was designed to meet the requirements of a new generation of TV viewers. Smaller form factor, 4K compatibility, single-screen integration of cable or over-the-air, plus streaming apps, the ability to take your content anywhere – and for the first time, the ability to precisely jump commercial breaks at the touch of a button,” said Ira Bahr, TiVo’s chief marketing and retail sales officer.
