TiVo tops 4.5m subs
TiVo has revealed it has more than 4.5 million subs (including TiVo’s retail TiVo-Owned and pay-TV subscriptions) who are now enjoying the TiVo experience, surpassing the previous record number of 4.45 million hit over eight years ago in December of 2006.
TiVo has launched its solution with 12 global operators. Three additional announced partners intend to launch solutions in the near future, bringing TiVo’s total to 15 partnerships. TiVo has distribution deals with US operators, including Suddenlink, RCN, Grande, Atlantic Broadband, General Communications Inc. (GCI), Astound, Cable ONE, Blue Ridge Communication, Mediacom, Midcontinent, Vyve Communications, and Wave Broadband. TiVo’s overseas deals currently include Virgin Media in the UK, ONO in Spain, and Com Hem, the largest cable operator in Scandinavia. Additionally, recently-acquired Digitalsmiths’ ongoing partnerships with Time Warner Cable, Foxtel and Bright House, among others, further intertwines TiVo with an ever-growing list of operators across the spectrum.
Jeff Klugman, TiVo’s Executive Vice President, said: “Our record subscriptions are the direct result of TiVo’s ability to bring real innovation to the cable industry. For example, it’s noteworthy that mid-size cable operators are answering the desires of their customers for whole-home/multiscreen solutions and access to OTT services like Netflix before the likes of some of the biggest operators in the world. This would not be possible today without TiVo. Our diverse suite of advanced television products and services help operators empower their customers to easily navigate the tsunami of content available today with a single easy user experience that searches across linear TV, OnDemand, and OTT content and delivers all that content, on multiple screens from virtually anywhere. TiVo’s solutions are value drivers for operators and are quickly becoming a must-have differentiator in an increasingly competitive market.”
