TiVo's Matthew Zinn Honored as 'Deal Maker of Year' by The
Association of Media & Entertainment Counsel 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 --  TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ:
TIVO), a leader in the advanced television entertainment market,
congratulates Matthew Zinn on earning The Association of Media &
Entertainment Counsel's PwC Dan Brandhorst Memorial Deal Maker of the
Year Award during the group's 8th Annual Counsel of the Year Awards
held last week in Los Angeles. Each year the AMEC recognizes the
achievements made by in-house counsel members in the media and
entertainment industry.  
Zinn, who serves as Senior Vice President, General Counsel, Secretary
and Chief Privacy Officer at TiVo, was recognized for his success in
leading the Company's intellectual property defense efforts
culminating in reaching settlement deals with DISH Network, AT&T, and
Verizon resulting in guaranteed payments to TiVo of over $1 billion.
In January 2012, Zinn's team settled patent litigation with AT&T and
then Verizon in September 2012, guaranteeing TiVo at least $465
million from these settlements in addition to more than $600 million
in consideration from the Company's 2011 settlement and damages from
DISH. 
"Matt brings an unparalleled level of expertise and legal acumen to
nearly every aspect of TiVo's business," said Tom Rogers, CEO and
President of TiVo. "This award is certainly well-deserved and, while
it stems from Matt's rigorous efforts in the settlement of our patent
litigations with AT&T and Verizon in 2012, it goes without saying
that his entire body of work at TiVo, including his expert
prosecution of our litigation against DISH two years ago, his
regulatory dealings, and his role in helping TiVo secure multiple new
television operator partnerships this year alone, among other notable
achievements, is worthy of accolades. With Matt spearheading our
in-house legal efforts and his track record of protecting our
valuable portfolio of patents, we are extremely confident in our
ongoing enforcement actions and the Company's ability to continue to
deliver value to our shareholders from our efforts in defending
TiVo's intellectual property." 
Zinn said, "I am honored and humbled to receive this award. I am also
fortunate to be part of a team of skilled attorneys who work
tirelessly to successfully protect and further validate TiVo's
intellectual innovations and bring them to our customers' homes
around the globe."
