2014: the year cable became “OTT friendly”

Was 2014 as good for you as it was for TiVo? Possibly not

The leading next generation TV specialist has been hailing 2014 as “record-breaking,” having surpassed the 5 million mark for subscribers, and lodging the company’s highest ever net revenue.

Driven by its integration of Netflix for a dozen cable operators worldwide, TiVo’s MSO revenue grew at a rate of approximately 40% year over year in the most recent quarter with 20 of the top 25 operators in the US leveraging various aspects of TiVo’s advanced television experiences.

2014 saw the company strike a unique deal with Comcast, including integration of Xfinity-on-Demand into the TiVo retail platform throughout all Comcast markets, and to date over 60% of cable subscribers in the UK have a full branded TiVo experience through TiVo’s relationship with Virgin Media in the UK.

Wednesday night would have also seen TiVo raising a glass of fizz to its success with content partnerships. In the past year, it has introduced more content partners than ever before. Among others, TiVo added VUDU and Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Furthermore, the company was awarded their fifth and sixth Emmy, adding two for “Innovation in Advanced Television Services.” The TiVo app was also honored by the Appy Awards.
