TiVo signs 4 telcos to TiVo Broadband

February 28, 2024

TiVo Platform Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of entertainment technology company Xperi, has announced that TiVo Broadband, a new solution specifically tailored for operators’ broadband-only customers, has signed four operators. This expansion comes on the heels of the initial launch of TiVo Broadband in January 2024 at CES.

TiVo Broadband leverages technology that powers the TiVo IPTV Platforms, which allows operators to enhance the streaming video experience for their broadband-only customers across a range of devices. In addition, TiVo Broadband delivers SVoD. TiVo’s FAST content network TiVo+, and customer-specific linear channels to an operator’s broadband-only customer base.

“Broadband providers have unique opportunities to harness the popularity of streaming to expand into new branded entertainment services,” said Greg Ireland, IDC’s Future Consumer research director. “A robust entertainment experience platform running on a connected device offers broadband providers a way to deliver a rich variety of streaming services to customers.”

US telcos Buckeye Broadband, Blue Stream Fiber, Blue Ridge Communications and Bluepeak are among the first to offer TiVo Broadband to their subscribers. Subscribers can utilise TiVo Broadband across devices, particularly for those seeking a managed environment; it is available on Evolution Digital’s EVO FORCE 1 and FUSE 4K stick.

“We have continued to build upon our commitment to provide our customers with the best, most cost-effective video consumption service, making the implementation of TiVo Broadband an obvious choice for us,” said Geoff Shook, president and general manager at Buckeye Broadband. “We believe the TiVo Broadband service will provide a meaningful alternative programming source for our customers as we continue to innovate and offer complementary solutions that ease programming issues.”

“Embracing the era of connectivity, we are enhancing the streaming video experience for broadband-only customers in new ways, across a full range of devices,” added Jeffrey Glahn, senior vice president, global sales at TiVo. “TiVo Broadband is an ally for operators seeking to advance their offerings to bring consumers to the content they love faster. The commitment of four operators, since the initial launch in January, shows a strong endorsement of our partners and their confidence in our ability to deliver and support innovation.”
