TiVo®, the company that brings entertainment together and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation, announced its preeminent streaming product – TiVo Stream 4K and TiVo Stream OS – expanded its premium Live TV offerings through an integration with YouTube TV – the first integration of its kind among streaming products.
TiVo Stream 4K is the only streaming device with a user friendly and customizable program guide designed to bring together multiple streaming services and favorite channels into the familiar functionality of a TV guide. By combining forces with YouTube TV – the premium live streaming service – TiVo enhances its consumer experience by providing TiVo Stream 4K users the ability to stream more than 85 channels of live sports, entertainment, and news. The service offers national broadcast affiliates, including ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, along with premier sports and news channels such as ESPN, NFL Network and PBS.
“As TiVo’s business has evolved from pioneering digital video recording to streaming products and services, our success has been grounded in understanding consumer preferences and delivering exactly what consumers want,” said Ben Maughan, general manager, Stream Platform. “The highly requested YouTube TV addition represents the largest content-related integration update since the launch of TiVo Stream 4K. Providing consumers with an integrated experience that includes premier live TV with a partner like YouTube TV is a significant step to becoming a leading streaming platform in the market.”
