  • Armstrong to Offer TiVo as Its Exclusive Advanced Television Solution for Subscribers Throughout Footprint

SAN JOSE, CA and BUTLER, PA — TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in the advanced television entertainment market, and Armstrong Utilities, Inc., a Pennsylvania-based telecommunications provider, today announced that Armstrong has selected TiVo as its advanced television solution for delivery of a multi-screen, seamlessly-combined linear, recorded, over the top, and video on demand TV experience.

The full collection of TiVo-powered whole-home products and services will allow Armstrong to deliver a consistent “TV Everywhere” experience to its subscribers — spanning TiVo’s cloud-based service, the Pace plc MG1 whole-home gateway DVR and Pace MI3 IP STB client and TiVo Stream, as well as on TiVo’s iOS and Android mobile applications.

Jeff Ross, President, Armstrong, said, “We have always been committed to providing our customers with the best television experience possible. Our decision to offer TiVo-powered solutions so they can get the content they want on any screen, wherever they are, is representative of that commitment. We are thrilled to partner with TiVo and eager to begin offering customers the customizable, next generation service that they demand.”

Thomas Elam, TiVo’s Vice President and General Manager of its US Service Provider Business, said, “Our partnership with Armstrong is a perfect example of how mid-size operators are increasingly looking to TiVo to deliver a proven, advanced, cost-efficient and quickly-deployable television solution to help them meet changing viewing habits and stay competitive in the communities they serve. We are confident that Armstrong’s new offerings powered by TiVo will be a hit with subscribers.”

TiVo and Armstrong plan on an early 2015 launch of the co-branded products as part of Armstrong’s bundled services offered primarily to residential and businesses subscribers across Pennsylvania.
