TiVo EDGE is described by the company as “its most advanced device ever”. Alongside the EDGE, and as an exclusive to TiVo customers comes TiVo+.
“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.”
TiVo is working with publishers including XUMO and Jukin Media for news, sports, kids shows, dramas, music TV, reality shows, pop culture, cooking shows, lifestyle, esports gaming and international programming that will sit alongside existing TV and subscription services.
Available exclusively to TiVo customers in the coming weeks, 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.
In an evolving entertainment landscape witnessing a proliferation of services and options for the viewer, TiVo+ combines entertainment including 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.
