    Post TiVo takes more than 2.5MN Euro subs

    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.

    TiVo passes 2.5m European subscribers

    March 14, 2014 10.13 Europe/London By Julian Clover


    TiVo Com HemTiVo has said it has now passed 2.5 million subscribers in the European market. The figures combine the published figures of the three European operators running the advanced television service; Virgin Media (UK), ONO (Spain) and Com Hem (Sweden).

    TiVo now covers nearly half of the subscribers at Virgin Media and a third of ONO subscribers.

    In a Broadband TV News interview David Sandford, Vice President, General Manager, International at TiVo explained how the company took on the heavy lifting within the development program.

    “What we do is hard. There are definitely other large operators that have taken it upon themselves to develop the operation. Five years ago it was about PVR and now it is about Multiscreen. No other platform or set-top that has Netflix available – the bar has been raised”.

    Netflix has turned into a key differentiator on both the Virgin and Com Hem platforms – arguably downsizing the OTT brand by sitting alongside the operators’ general offers.

    Com Hem’s launch of TiVo in October 2013 was the first such full hybrid QAM/IP and IPTV deployment and served to demonstrate that cable operators have a clear migration path to IPTV utilizing TiVo’s solutions.

    Over two million TiVo subscribers on the Virgin network sit alongside Com Hem’s reported 38,000 – Broadband TV News understands this has risen significantly since the end of December – and the 65,000 reported by ONO in the last quarter.
