GCI, the largest telecommunications company in Alaska, is the destination for the first TiVo unit to be manufactured by Pace.

The Pace XG1 Multi-tuner Video Gateway with TiVo Advanced User Interface platform, offering its cable customers linear TV, VOD and interactive content across multiple screens and devices.

GCI, whose cable plant passes 78% of homes in Alaska, has been offering TiVo to its customers for the last two years. It has also been a regular customer for the British technology developer.

Tim O’Loughlin, President of Pace Americas said: “Over the course of our seven plus year partnership with GCI, we have been fortunate to launch multiple new technologies in the Alaska market. GCI is the first on a long list of service providers planning deployments of our solution this year. The reception by subscribers and the industry of this joint product initiative has been incredible.”

The advanced feature set of Pace’s XG1 incorporates a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem supporting full IP connectivity.
