BOSTON-- WOW Internet, Cable and Phone has made the first deployments of Evolution Digital's TiVo-powered eBox hybrid set-tops for its low-cost "Swivel" video service.
Is the ongoing $1.1 billion merger of TiVo and Rovi an attempt to create one of the biggest patent trolls the video industry has ever seen? That was essentially the question put forth Thursday to...
The cash and stock deal, which Rovi expects to close in the third quarter, creates a new company valued, Rovi said, at around $3 billion and armed with nearly 6,000 patents and $800 million in annual revenue.
TiVo and Rovi Corp. continue to have serious discussions about a merger, Bloomberg reports.
TiVo says no major broadcast or cable network will run commercials for its Bolt DVR because of its ad-skipping "SkipMode" feature.
TiVo and Rovi are reportedly in "advanced negotiations" to merge in a deal that would see Rovi buy the DVR specialist for a yet to be determined price, according to the New York Times.
TiVo's research division released a new report suggesting brands are pennywise, dollar-foolish when they move their advertising dollars out of television.
TiVo added another 318,000 subscriptions through cable-operator partnerships in the last quarter, bringing its total MSO reach to 5.47 million.
TiVo is cutting 50 full-time employees and some contractors as the company plans to refocus on North American MSO growth.
TiVo continues to rack up deployment of its advanced TV interface with small and mid-sized MSOs, announcing a new deal with Buckeye CableSystem.
