Cable One to deploy TiVo DVR software
TiVo (Nasdaq: TIVO) said that Phoenix, Ariz.-based Cable One agreed to deploy its DVR software next year.
Cable One is opting to deploy TiVo's software and user interface on DVRs from other manufacturers, rather than deploy the TiVo Premiere in subscriber homes, as several small and mid-sized cable operators have done. But TiVo didn't name the set-top vendor that it will work with to integrate its software for the Cable One deployment.
TiVo also has an agreement to install its software on set-tops that Charter Communications (Nasdaq: CHTR) deploys. But TiVo CEO Tom Rogers told analysts in August that the Charter deployment would be delayed as Charter looks at new set-tops and home video gateway devices.
TiVo said in a statement that Cable One would begin deploying its software during the first half of 2013 "as part of its broader plan to make the TiVo experience available throughout its footprint in 2013."
