The Emmy honors the interactive TV and whole-home experience that users will find with their TiVo® Premiere DVR, TiVo Mini and TiVo Stream.

"At TiVo, we don't innovate to win awards -- we do it because we love television and believe that consumers deserve a better experience," said Margret Schmidt, Vice President of Design & Engineering, Chief Design Officer at TiVo Inc. "We are thrilled to win an Emmy for the TiVo Premiere and consider it further validation of the incredible work so many people at TiVo have put into creating the best interactive TV and whole-home experience on the market today."
