Dave Zatz of the eponymous site likens the Mavrik (possibly the successor to the leaked, never-released TiVo Mantis) to Tablo, the over-the-air streamer that itself resembles SiliconDust's HDHomeRun.
The new product and service would not be a stretch for TiVo, which acquired Aereo for a cheap $1 million when that OTA-streaming service was killed by a Supreme Court Ruling in 2014. TiVo promised it was “keeping the Aereo dream alive.”
Zatz notes a discription from an Android app for Mavrik that offers:
- TV Program Guide
- OTA Live Streaming
- Streaming Content Search, allowing users to deep link into their Amazon Prime Video account
- Cloud DVR access
