TiVO CEO Tom Rogers encouraged multi-system operators (MSOs) to cede their video businesses to cord-cutting and profit on TV through broadband services.
TiVo has launched a new version of the web portal it maintains for its MSO partners, TiVo Online, that curates programming, sets DVR recordings and--notably--lets users stream live and recorded content to PCs around the home.
With a partnership between the two companies announced years ago finally bearing fruit, Cox Communications has confirmed that it will enable its VOD services to work in TiVo digital video recorders purchased by its customers at retail.
St. Louis-based mid-sized cable operator Suddenlink Communications has become the latest MSO to integrate Hulu into its program guide.
TiVo, which is now the leader in the market for cord-cutting DVRs, continues to play both sides of the disruptor fence, announcing the addition of 285,000 new subscribers in the first quarter of fiscal 2016, most of them coming from MSO relationships.
TiVo is putting the assets it acquired in February from defunct streaming service Aereo to good use, marketing its over-the-air DVR directly to former Aereo subscribers.
TiVo's momentum with cable operators continues, with the UK's biggest MSO, Liberty Global-owned Virgin Media, committing to using the tech company's set-tops through 2018.
Just three days after Comcast's NBCUniversal division announced the launch of a new comedy-focused SVOD service, the conglomerate has been outmaneuvered by TiVo.
In the pitched battle raging between incumbent pay-TV operators and insurgent OTT services, TiVo continues to profit quite nicely from playing Switzerland.
Aereo suffered an ignominious ending to its short, disappointing life Thursday, with the auction of the online video tech company's remaining assets netting less than $2 million.
