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.
TiVo has joined the mounting chorus of opposition to Charter Communications' bid to acquire Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks.
TiVo has appointed its CFO, Naveen Chopra, as its interim CEO, replacing Tom Rogers, who is stepping aside on Jan. 31 to assume the role of non-executive chairman.
TiVo is partnering with consumer behavioral research company Data Mine to provide in-depth viewer analysis for NBCUniversal's upcoming multiplatform presentation of the Summer Olympics in Rio.
