Another TiVo development is the culmination of an agreement with Comcast, the largest multichannel provider in the US with over 23 million subs. The agreement allows Comcast subs to buy at retail a TiVo Premier and Comcast will activate it for all subscribed channels as in the past, but also now with xfinity On Demand, PPV, and 'over-the-top' Internet content from Netflix, Hulu and other online providers.
TiVo also has similar agreements with other US and international cable providers, and will supply them with gateway devices and thin-client IP set-tops.
TiVo CEO Tom Rogers: "It's a way for multiple set-tops in a household to be served. It works with a core unit, a gateway unit, that allows for multiple streams to multiple television sets as part of a whole-home solution. It is something that we will deliver to a number of operators that will be looking for it in the middle of the year."
