TiVo is pursuing new patent litigation in its fight against Comcast, following its success at the International Trade Commission.
US operator Comcast must stop importing and selling X1 set-top boxes after a patent ruling by the International Trade Commission.
Hulu LLC has launched a suit against Tivo in California federal court Tuesday, claiming it doesn’t need to renew an expired licensing agreement since three patents covered by the agreement are no longer applicable.
TiVo has renewed product and intellectual property (IP) licenses with Panasonic Corporation. The multiyear extension for the company’s products in the Japanese market was through subsidiary Rovi.
Rovi Corporation said that it has completed its acquisition of TiVo and will adopt the Tivo brand.
The Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice has completed its investigation into the proposed purchase of TiVo by Rovi.
Viewers are frustrated at their inability to find anything to watch and platforms that push paid for content in their recommendation.
Rovi is to buy TiVo in a $1.1 billion deal that creates a $3 billion company under the TiVo name.
TiVo is in advanced negotiations to be sold to Rovi, according to The New York Times.
Rovi says it will continue to defend its patent portfolio, despite the latest Appeal Court loss against Virgin Media.
