ATLANTA, GA and SAN JOSE, CA – September 1, 2015 – TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leading innovator in the advanced television space, and Cox Communications, the third-largest U.S. cable TV company serving approximately 6 million residences and businesses, today announced Cox’s On DEMAND content is now available for joint subscribers using TiVo Roamio® and TiVo Premier DVRs.
Cox’s robust On DEMAND library of more than 18,000 movies and shows will now be seamlessly integrated with Cox TV channels and the popular streaming apps1 available through TiVo, allowing consumers to access, find and search for their favorite content all through one user experience. The offering will begin to roll out today via a software update, reaching the entirety of Cox’s digital footprint by the end of 2015. Customers with Advanced TV and Essential Internet or higher will have access to VOD content.
“Cox’s commitment to open their VOD catalog to TiVo provides users the opportunity to utilize the simple and intuitive TiVo experience to enjoy a broad library of operator and OTT content on whatever platform they choose,” said Ira Bahr, TiVo’s Chief Marketing and Retail Sales Officer. “Working with Cox, we are able to provide a solution for making their vast library of On Demand content available and combine it with the best of popular streaming apps to deliver a tremendous volume of great content for viewers.”
In addition to partnering with other U.S. cable operators that offer the TiVo DVR as the primary Set Top Box for subscribers, TiVo works with Pay-TV operators to provide their customers who purchase TiVo retail products with the ability to consolidate cable, on-demand and streaming1 options into one easy entertainment experience. Cox now will afford its subscribers the choice of using a TiVo DVR (as an alternative to an operator-provided cable box) for recording and viewing Cox’s line-up of premium content. Cox’s and Comcast’s offerings with TiVo now will enable 30 million U.S. cable subscribers to use TiVo DVRs as an alternative user experience for accessing the respective on-demand libraries of these cable operators.
