TiVo and thePlatform, the white-label video publishing company, have been selected by RCN Telecom Services to create RCN’s forthcoming TV Everywhere portal.
The new TV Everywhere portal will feature the ability to watch video over an Internet connection, plus seamless integration with RCN’s linear television and On Demand offering, all accessible through the rich TiVo user experience. thePlatform’s cloud-based, mpx management system will collect, protect, and publish online video to RCN’s TV Everywhere portal across IP-connected devices. The new solution will ensure there is a common, simple user interface across all the devices that authenticated RCN subscribers use to access their TV content in and out of the home.
The new offering will enable RCN video households access to the renowned TiVo user experience, including universal search, browse, recommendations, personalisation, playback and much more. The RCN TV Everywhere portal will go beyond traditional TV Everywhere offerings by unifying linear, operator VoD, and RCN TV Everywhere content.
