TiVo Launch Will Deliver Both IP and Traditional VOD and Linear Content on Any Screen in the Home for Mediacom Subscribers
WASHINGTON, DC — TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in the advanced television entertainment market, and Mediacom Communications Corporation, the 8th largest cable operator in the US, today announced from the NCTA 2013 Cable show in Washington, D.C. that Mediacom has begun rollout of its TiVo offering.
“We are thrilled at the speed and ease with which we were able to prepare for the launch of TiVo in our markets,” said John Pascarelli, Executive Vice President of Operations at Mediacom Communications Corporation. “Mediacom wanted to move fast to offer a market-leading multi-room DVR and all screens solution. TiVo has really delivered for us. We are bringing a tremendous experience to our customers and maintaining needed flexibility to evolve the platform over time. We anticipate the seamless rollout of the TiVo experience to continue throughout the remainder of 2013.”
Thomas Elam, VP of TiVo’s Service Provider Business, said, “Mediacom is a fantastic partner. They are very customer focused and have a vision for advanced services that was a challenge for their traditional vendors. Our partnership with Mediacom leverages the best of both companies. We are delighted by the speed at which our teams were able to make our advanced multi-screen, multi-source advanced television offering a reality for Mediacom subscribers.”
As Mediacom’s primary software provider for next-generation consumer video experience, TiVo was able to bring a customized best-in-class whole-home, multi-screen suite of products to market for Mediacom’s subscribers just nine months after signing an agreement. Now, Mediacom customers in a growing number of markets can access both IP and traditional VOD and linear content delivered via TiVo’s award-winning user experience on any screen in the home. Mediacom will deploy the TiVo Premiere Q 4-tuner gateway DVR, TiVo Mini IP set-top box client and companion applications for iOS and Android devices. As part of its broader rollout plan for the year, Mediacom also intends to offer the 6-tuner, DOCSIS 3.0-capable Pace plc XG1 gateway with the TiVo experience.
