TiVo takes more than 2.5MN Euro subs
Editor | 14-03-2014
Showing just how strong it is in the region — with customers such as Virgin Media, Com Hem and ONO — TiVo has revealed that it has surpassed 2.5 million subscribers in Europe.
The PVR pioneer now covers nearly half of the subscribers at Virgin Media and a third of ONO subscribers. It says that the uptick underscores the company’s transformation to being a major international TV platform and services company with Europe's most broadly deployed advanced cable TV solution.
In addition it claims that enabling operators to offer integrated linear, on-demand, catch-up and over-the-top (OTT) services on QAM or IPTV networks, having an NPVR solution receiving positive reception from operators, plus increased recognition of TiVo cloud-based services have all contributed to powering user interfaces and, hence, uptake.
"Consumers globally are increasingly demanding a superior TV viewing experience that enables them to access content across multiple screens and devices anytime and anywhere. Our growing roster of international pay-TV operator partners including Com Hem, Virgin Media and ONO recognised this trend early and share TiVo's vision for the future of TV consumption," said David Sandford, vice president, general manager, international, at TiVo. "TiVo leads the market in multiscreen, TV everywhere capabilities with deployments across multiple third-party set-top boxes, iOS and Android operating systems and the Web, and Europe represents the largest share of TiVo deployments worldwide to date."
TiVo assures that it will ‘aggressively’ continue moving its advanced television capabilities to the cloud, further enhancing the service it can deliver for operators. It plans to deploy a full-featured network PVR solution with initial customers later in 2014.
