TiVo has surpassed 4 million international subscriptions through its traditional TiVo offering. According to TiVo, this represents an important milestone in its international growth and comes as the result of accelerated subscription growth in Europe through customers such as Virgin Media/Liberty Global in the UK, ONO/Vodafone in Spain, and Com Hem in Sweden – each respectively the largest cable company in their country.
“TiVo continues to offer one of the most compelling experiences for international television operators through the ability to integrate traditional linear content, video on demand and internet streaming services, such as Netflix, all in one interface on the television or on mobile devices such as the tablet or smartphone,” said David Sandford, Vice President, General Manager, International at TiVo.
“Our recent acquisition of Cubiware has expanded our ability to service international markets allowing us to offer products to almost every television operator regardless of size or ARPU in a given market. We now offer a portfolio of products to large, medium and small sized operators seeking a diverse array of products and features to serve a wide spectrum of subscribers.”
TiVo has become a leading global provider of advanced television solutions through its relationships with over 70 operators in 25 plus countries through its traditional TiVo offering as well as its Cubiware and Digitalsmiths products. Over half of these deployments are outside North America, where, according to ABI research, international subscriber growth is expected to increase the worldwide pay-TV market to more than 1 billion subscribers by 2020.
With the addition of the 24 million households represented by the operators Cubiware and Digitalsmiths work with today, TiVo has relationships with operators that have a combined global footprint representing close to 90 million households.
