Cox Communications and TiVo come to terms over DVR technology

TiVo, a pioneer in digital video recorder (DVR) technology, has licensed its intellectual property to Cox Communications, the nation's fourth-largest cable TV company. The agreement also provides for Cox to distribute TiVo's interactive advertising platform.

Under the deal, TiVo will customize its cable software for deployment on compatible Cox DVR set-top-boxes. TiVo's downloadable software will allow Cox to deliver the TiVo service in Cox subscriber homes without replacing existing DVR boxes, and without an install appointment.

Such deals, similar to one TiVo reached with Comcast last year, may increase because of TiVo's strengthened position after winning a patent infringement suit last spring against EchoStar.

Financial terms of the Cox-TiVo deal were not disclosed.
