      Answer

      Yes, it does. If your'e using it with cable you get a cablecard from your cable company, which depending on the company is either free, or a few dollars a month. The Tivo then replaces any cable box you may have been using (and is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than cable DVRs). Just make sure the cable company quits charging you for the cable box after you give it back!

          Answer

          You should look at the product page on BestBuy.com before asking a question. Their website clearly states the Bolt is 4K UltraHD compatible (pending your source material) and contents in the box includes the remote. I have included a screenshot of the page for your reference

                Answer

                One comes with a year of free service and the other does not and its a $100 dollar diffence, but the ones that come with the year of free TiVo service won't last long because TiVo is no longer shipping them out.

                    I was on with Spectrum (Formerly Time Warner) Cable Card tech support for about 20 minutes with each box (I have 2) Once the Cable Card (and requires cable tuner box which the cable company should supply w/card) was inserted it went through some updates and installs and then tells you to call your cable provider cable service. For Spectrum, this tech support was separate from normal customer care. My two cents...
