TiVo Facilitates Operator Migration to IPTV

Offering Full Hybrid and IPTV Solutions That Coexist With Operators' Existing QAM Footprints

Company Release - 9/12/2013 5:06 AM ET

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwired) -- 09/12/13 -- TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a global leader in the advanced television entertainment market, today announced that it is showcasing its full hybrid QAM/IP and IPTV offering at the International Broadcasting Conference 2013 (IBC) in Amsterdam. This solution is designed to work within cable operators' existing architecture to implement its best-in-class advanced television solution as cable operators continue to transition to video delivery over IP.

TiVo has created a single solution that can be deployed on either traditional QAM or IPTV networks. The solution can be migrated between either network while providing the same TiVo® experience including integration of linear, On Demand, catchup and over the top services. The operator can configure the TiVo servers just once with service information (channel lineups, packages, entitlements, etc.) and have it applied to set-tops on QAM and IPTV networks, as well as the TiVo multi-screen applications. The TiVo service provides a single, future-proof solution across all screens and network types.

As an example Com Hem, the leading television operator in Sweden recently began rollout of the TiVo solution across both its QAM and IPTV footprint and, announced strong demand for its new offering with over 45,000 customers preregistered. Through TiVo, Com Hem can market across its entire footprint with an identical service offering.

David Sandford, Vice President and General Manager, International at TiVo, said, "We are seeing consumers around the globe demanding TV Everywhere solutions, and cable operators working overtime to transition to IPTV in order to ensure that their subscribers get the viewing experiences they demand. To address this, TiVo enables operators' migrations by offering solutions that coexist with operators' existing QAM footprint, enhancing the value of the operator's offering for its subscribers."

With this solution, TiVo's operator partners can seamlessly deploy to their subscribers a cost-effective and market-tested suite of devices and applications including a choice of hybrid gateway PVRs, low-cost hybrid and IP set-top boxes and a range of TV Everywhere applications for tablets, smart phones, and web browsers, all with a consistent user experience and content offering.

IBC 2013 runs from September 12-17 in Amsterdam. TiVo's booth is located at Stand Number 14.531 / Hall Number 14.
