SeaChange, TiVo Team up on VOD
TiVo and SeaChange International have joined forces to integrate cable video-on-demand services into TiVo HD DVRs.

The integration will allow cable operators that deploy TiVo HD DVRs to offer VOD content residing on the SeaChange platform to subscribers via TiVo’s universal search function.

“By teaming with SeaChange, we are enabling cable operators without OCAP/tru2way deployment plans to increase the breadth and depth of their offering by quickly deploying TiVo set-top boxes that seamlessly integrate VOD in a single, intuitive TiVo interface,” said Tom Rogers, TiVo’s president and chief executive officer. “This solution also enables participating MSOs to take their on-demand offering to a whole new level by highlighting VOD titles within TiVo universal search results. And the beauty of this is that it can be achieved faster and at a lower cost than most solutions that have been available to cable operators to date.”

SeaChange delivers billions of on-demand streams to millions of cable and IPTV subscribers globally. TiVo HD DVR set tops combined with SeaChange VOD capabilities provide an efficient way for operators to further differentiate their service with the TiVo Service.

“TiVo is synonymous with the optimal viewer experience and our collaboration is directly in line with SeaChange’s focus on innovating to help television operators leverage the infrastructure they have in place today to provide new services and opportunities,” said Bill Styslinger, president and CEO, SeaChange. “VOD has matured into a vital, core service and by offering another solution with TiVo, we’re once again sure to put operators of any size in a better position to deliver rich on-demand services fast and cost effectively.”

The service will be available to participating cable operators on select TiVo branded HD cable set-top boxes later this year.
