TiVo Launches Enhanced Personalization and Wider Device Availability for Fan TV

Company Release - 9/27/2016 8:00 AM ET

Enables operators to quickly deploy next generation discovery services across hybrid or all-IP video networks

PHILADELPHIA & SAN CARLOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SCTE/ISBE Cable-Tec Expo — TiVo (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in entertainment software and technology, today announced that Fan TV, the next generation TV experience, will include new personalization and discovery features across TV, tablet and mobile devices. Additionally, Fan TV will now be available on Apple TV and Roku, making it easier than ever for operators to expand their market reach.

The updated version of Fan TV will integrate personalized, contextual recommendations into the experience, as well as introduce a smart grid guide to enable users to rapidly find content within a familiar grid-based format. Fan TV will learn from user activity to guide discovery and provide intelligent and accurate recommendations to users seamlessly across live, VOD and OTT networks. The new smart grid guide delivers visual cues to alert users when programs on their WatchList show up in the broadcast schedule.

Fan TV’s extension to Apple TV and Roku, in addition to Android TV and Amazon Fire TV, allows operators to reach new consumer segments and deliver innovative discovery experiences with skinny bundle service offerings. Fan TV provides a fast time to market with its award-winning, cross-screen user experience that is fully customizable to an operator’s branding and selection of devices.

“TiVo strives to provide innovative discovery products and services for customers, enabling improved experiences for subscribers,” said Michael Hawkey, senior vice president and general manager of the user experience business group at TiVo. “The updates to Fan TV will help subscribers find relevant content rapidly, while offering operators much needed flexibility across different networks and devices to mitigate trends toward unbundling and cord shaving.”

Fan TV allows operators to deploy a next generation video service that leverages existing video delivery networks, including QAM, satellite or over the air, for linear video delivery. Additionally, Fan TV aggregates IP-delivered OTT content and provides advanced discovery capabilities for a feature-rich, universal discovery experience. Available as an end-to-end software solution or as apps for mobile and streaming devices, Fan TV delivers a simple and powerful navigation and personalized entertainment experience across multiple screens and services — all designed to strengthen and differentiate existing provider offerings.

TiVo will showcase its comprehensive suite of solutions during the Cable-Tec Expo in booth 903.
