TiVo
Corporation
(NASDAQ: TIVO), a global leader in entertainment
technology and audience insights, today announced that RCN, a leading
cable operator, has selected TiVo’s Next-Gen
Platform
to bring advanced innovation to its customers. RCN will be
the first operator to deploy the Next-Gen Platform and will roll out its
new TiVo-powered video solution to its high-speed internet, digital TV
and home phone customers. RCN also plans to expand the TiVo offerings
across its properties, including Grande Communications Networks and
WaveDivision Holdings. RCN was the first operator to deploy TiVo in the
Pay-TV space.

“After reviewing a number of solutions on the market, we were impressed
with TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform and their commitment to helping us bring
forth a compelling user experience, personalized recommendations,
advanced voice functionality and multi-platform support to our
customers,” said Patrick Murphy, CTO, RCN, Grande and Wave.
“Additionally, TiVo’s IPTV products provide advanced video solutions for
our broadband-only subscribers and enhance the RCN viewing experience
across mobile platforms.”

Under the agreement, RCN will power its next-generation solution with
TiVo’s IPTV suite of products, including TiVo Solutions for Android TV,
TiVo for Streamers and TiVo for Mobile. This will enable the delivery of
IPVOD, IP Linear, Restart, Catch-Up and Network DVR content to RCN
subscribers on managed STBs powered by Android TV and unmanaged
consumer-owned devices, such as Amazon Fire, Apple TV, as well as iOS
and Android mobile devices. Subscribers can enjoy the ultimate
entertainment experience with hyper-personalization, advanced search and
recommendations, conversational voice control and universal discovery
across content platforms. This will enable RCN to reduce churn, drive
customer engagement, as well as capture new market segments and
monetization opportunities with differentiated business models and
revenue streams.

“We are excited to continue working with RCN and providing their
customers with a feature-rich and highly personalized user experience
that they can take with them across their favorite devices,” said
Jeffrey Glahn, vice president of sales, TiVo. “TiVo’s future-proof
product portfolio provides the flexibility, scalability and next-gen
IPTV services that will enable RCN to demonstrate market leadership in
an ever-evolving entertainment landscape.”

TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform is a game-changing solution that enables
operators to effectively adapt to a rapidly evolving market with a
complete set of unified products and versatile deployment options across
QAM, IPTV and hybrid infrastructures. Powered by cloud services for
rapid innovation, the platform delivers high feature velocity and
enables operators to manage the transition to IPTV on their own terms.
