TiVo retains Easel TV for third phase of Virgin integration
September 6, 2012
Easel TV, the connected TV specialists – TiVo’s sole representative in the UK and responsible for all of TiVo’s product integration on the Virgin Media:TiVo platform – has been retained for the third successive product integration phase. This follows a two and a half year relationship between the two companies where Easel TV has integrated TiVo’s software for the Virgin Media connected TV platform.
Joshua Danovitz, VP of TiVo International, said: “I am delighted with the continued support that Easel TV provides in our important relationship with Virgin Media in the UK. Easel TV has been retained for the third successive product development and integration phase because they have provided a highly performant resource that continues to make a tremendous effort to see a first class product out the door.”
Easel TV has been part of all three Virgin Media:TiVo product releases. Phase Three release introduces ‘Reminders’, where even if a user does miss the reminder pop-up, they will not miss their show as TiVo will still record it for them. Other updates in Phase Three include more flexibility in managing series recordings links and Wishlists, quicker access to playing movies and catch up TV from search and browse, the integration of BBC iPlayer search and general stability updates for TiVo.
