TiVoTiVo fans rejoice. Our "how did we ever watch TV before this?" gadget just revealed its even cooler cousin.

Speaking at Tuesday night's NYC launch party for TiVo Premiere, CEO Tom Rodgers explained that the new product is "your new cable box, it's your movie box, it's your Web box and music box," according to the Hollywood Reporter. And, in typical TiVo style, they've simplified the user experience as Rodgers detailed, "We've taken millions of pieces of content and organized it for you in a way that makes so much sense you'll wonder how you ever lived without it."

Mind-boggled by all the entertainment choices available to you? TiVo Premiere makes sorting through Internet TV, movie and music, on-demand offerings and YouTube videos a snap. And the set-top box also boasts a button that zooms through 30 seconds of recorded material in 1 second flat. Buh-bye commercials!TiVoTiVo fans rejoice.

How much will this nifty gadget set you back? Hitting retailers early next month, the baseline Premiere 320 GB model sells for $299 and will store 400 hours of standard programs and 45 hours of HD, while for $499, the top o' the line 1 TB Premiere XL will hold a whopping 1,350 hours of standard and 150 hours of HD! (Satellite TV users need not apply, this baby only works with cable.)

Oh, and TiVo has also forged a few new partnerships that promise to make the experience even cooler. First there's Pandora which will let users fashion their very own Internet radio stations and then there's FrameChannel, a service that enables users to aggregate all their photos and choose among 400 channels for personalized content like horoscopes, news, weather and the like.

TiVo says that with the Premiere they're about to "revolutionize the way we watch TV. Again." We'll see.
