Company Release - 9/1/2011 10:56 AM ET

Meetings to Showcase Why Leading Pay TV Operators Around the World Are Turning to TiVo for Help Deploying Hybrid Television Solutions

ALVISO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/01/11 -- TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in advanced television services and personal video recorders (PVRs), today announced that it will be hosting private meetings and product demonstrations for industry executives during the upcoming IBC 2011 Expo in Amsterdam, September 8-13, 2011. As a result, invited attendees will have the opportunity to learn about TiVo's full suite of products for cable, satellite, and digital terrestrial operators including TiVo's next-generation hybrid software platform that seamlessly blends traditional linear television and broadband delivered video into a single, easy to navigate, high definition user interface.

TiVo's critical role in the rapidly evolving television industry has never been more evident than today. Operators around the world are realizing that in order to remain competitive and keep subscribers, they need to embrace a hybrid-television solution and a complete family of products beyond just a PVR in order to provide a whole-home solution. TiVo is one of the few companies in the market that can deliver on this proposition in a way that's beneficial to both the operator and consumer.

Joshua Danovitz, Vice President, TiVo International, said, "Rolling out a hybrid-TV experience can be a difficult, time consuming, and expensive proposition for almost all operators to do on their own. However, it's becoming increasingly evident, based on TiVo's momentum with operators including Virgin Media and ONO in Europe and RCN and Suddenlink in the United States, that TiVo is fast becoming the go-to solution for operators looking to remain ahead of the curve and meet the needs of their subscribers as they continue to expect a growing variety of content options delivered to an increasingly diverse set of consumption devices."

TiVo's deep understanding of how consumers want to watch television is proving time and time again extremely valuable to operators around the world and is the key reason TiVo's hybrid television solutions are being embraced by operators looking to remain competitive in their markets more now than ever before. In fact, a recent article in Wired magazine noted, "There are exactly three companies in this world that are truly great at interface design - Apple, Google, and TiVo." TiVo will be showcasing a number of current and future capabilities during the meetings at IBC. These include:

  • TiVo's high definition, Adobe Flash based user interface which seamlessly blends linear television content with a wide variety of Internet video content in an elegant, easy-to-navigate, single package
  • Universal search & browse capabilities which allows viewers to quickly and easily find the content they want regardless of the source, encompassing linear TV, cable VOD, & MSO approved OTT
  • Whole-Home Solution: TiVo software solutions that extend the world class TiVo experience to devices like non-PVR STBs, personal computers, connected TVs, tablets, and smartphones
  • Interconnection of TiVo with mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, and BlackBerry Phones
  • TiVo's unsurpassed ability to personalize the user experience and recommend content based on their previous viewing habits
  • Personalized third party application support through Java & Flash -- opening the door for limitless expansion of what TiVo can bring to the television screen
  • Last but not least, TiVo's unique advertising and measurement capabilities which provide unique monetization and targeting opportunities
