“Today, people face confusion and overwhelming choice when it comes to home entertainment – US households have an average of 7.2 entertainment subscriptions, and that’s growing all the time,” said Dave Shull, president and CEO, TiVo.
“Everyone at TiVo is passionate about helping viewers make sense of that sea of options by bringing all their entertainment together in one place.
“TiVo+ and TiVo EDGE will make it easier for viewers to find and enjoy watching what they love across live TV, DVR and online streaming services.”
Witnessing a proliferation of options for the viewer, TiVo+ delivers live streaming channels and thousands of movies and TV shows to viewers in an app-free environment, making them easy to find, watch, and enjoy.
The entertainment hub will include news, sports, kids shows, dramas, music TV, reality shows, pop culture, cooking shows, lifestyle, eSports gaming and international programming alongside the TV and subscription services people already use and love.
Through the new entertainment channel, pay-TV operators can offer exciting new content while brand advertisers can seek new opportunities to reach highly engaged TV audiences with targeted messages.
Pairing TiVo+ with TiVo EDGE, an all-in-one 4K Ultra HD (UHD) device, provides users the ultimate entertainment experience. Furthermore, TiVo EDGE gives viewers access to live, recorded, and streaming TV all on one device.
The two variations – TiVo EDGE cable and antenna – include Dolby Atmos and, for the first time, Dolby Vision HDR, that optimises every scene for the richest, sharpest, and most vibrant picture possible.
TiVo proves to be edgy with custom button, OneSearch which allows viewers to simultaneously search live TV, DVR recordings and streaming apps to quickly and easily find live content. For cord-lovers, TiVo EDGE (cable) provides a seamless experience between cable, and online TV programming on-demand, including all major streaming services.
