Commercial-Cutting Media Streamers

The TiVo Bolt Features 4K Definition and a Massive Hard Drive

— September 30, 2015 — Tech
Many people around the world are ditching their set tops to watch media on their laptops and tablets, but if you're still a fan of cable while still wanting the flexibility of streaming then the TiVo Bolt might be perfect for you. Featuring a wireless design aesthetic, the TiVo Bolt allows viewers to skip pesky commercials with the press of a button, all while enjoying content that can be 4K in definition.

Coming in either a 500GB or 1TB model, the TiVo Bolt also features the ability to connect an external hard drive for additional storage. Netflix and Amazon Prime are also compatible with the TiVo Bolt, which means you'll be able to get the best of both the cable and streaming worlds with one device.
Trend Themes
1. Media Streamlining - There is an opportunity for tech companies to create more integrated systems that streamline traditional media viewing with online streaming.
2. Commercial Skipping - There is an opportunity for advertisers to create more engaging commercials that viewers won't want to skip, or for companies to create alternative, non-intrusive ad formats that are more effective in capturing attention.
3. 4K Definition - There is an opportunity for companies to create more 4K-compatible devices that enhance the viewing experience for consumers.
Industry Implications
1. Television and Cable - There is an opportunity for traditional television and cable companies to adopt new technologies and features that cater to the changing consumer habits and preferences, or risk becoming obsolete.
2. Streaming Services - There is an opportunity for streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime to expand their reach by partnering with device manufacturers that offer a more integrated and seamless viewing experience for their subscribers.
3. Advertising - There is an opportunity for advertisers to adopt new ad formats that are more effective, less intrusive, and more engaging for viewers.
