July 31, 2018

Atlantic Broadband, the 9th largest cable operator in the US, has launched the new TiVo Experience 4 combined with IP-based VoD. TiVo says its new entertainment platform features “a new, modern user interface with intuitive navigation and enhanced functionality, hyper-personalised viewing recommendations and an easy-to-use remote, offering.”

“The new experience is not only visually beautiful, but will transform the TV experience for our customers,” said Heather McCallion, Vice President of Products and Programming for Atlantic Broadband. “Sophisticated, advanced technology powers the new interface, but it’s amazingly simple to use and will make it easier for customers to find and enjoy the shows they love to watch. We are pleased to bring this major product enhancement to Atlantic Broadband’s markets as we continue to innovate on behalf of the customers we serve.”

“Consumers today have access to more TV content than ever before, but finding it requires multiple devices and varying content sources. TiVo Experience 4 brings it all together and gets you to your favourite shows faster than ever before, while learning what you like to watch,” said Michael Hawkey, Senior Vice President and General Manager, User Experience, TiVo. “Combined with a visually-rich onscreen user experience, TiVo Experience 4 provides an intuitive and powerful entertainment experience that we’re sure Atlantic Broadband customers will love.”

In conjunction with the launch of TiVo Experience 4, Atlantic Broadband has introduced a new, IP-based Video On Demand platform powered by SeaChange. The IP platform substantially increases the number of on-demand choices, while quickly and efficiently delivering the content to customers on the viewing device of their choice.

“We are proud that our cBridge Adrenalin solution is an integral element of Atlantic Broadband’s innovative platform,” said Mark Tubinis, Senior Vice President of Strategy at SeaChange. “Atlantic Broadband’s multi-vendor integration and focus on personalization are in complete alignment with our open, personalised vision for video’s future.”

TiVo Experience 4 and IP VOD enhancements will launch this week in Atlantic Broadband’s Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine service areas, and in its other markets by year’s end.
