TiVo to Power Cable Operators' Mobile and Second Screen Experience 
Mobile Companion App 'Powered by TiVo' Enables Operators to
Efficiently Deliver Custom Branded Solution to Subscribers; Atlantic
Broadband First Cable Operator to Announce Mobile Applications
Deployment 
WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/13 --   TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ:
TIVO), a leader in the advanced television entertainment market,
today announced its highly rated mobile app and second screen
companion experience is now available for cable operators 'powered by
TiVo.' The offering provides the ability to offer an operator's
subscribers access to a powerful second screen experience
specifically designed to support all households -- homes with and
without TiVo devices. This increased flexibility for the operator
will further engage subscribers via their mobile devices and enhance
the value of the operator's video and broadband subscription. 
Thomas Elam, Vice President and General Manager Service Provider
Business, TiVo, said, "TiVo's operator solutions help the provider's
subscribers realize the full value of their subscription and enhance
content related transactions. We are excited to provide the full
power of our mobile applications 'powered by TiVo' to our operator
partners. This key part of our strategy to provide great media
experiences on all screens will be a co-branded experience to promote
customer retention -- especially for users who may not yet have a
TiVo set-top box (STB) -- and provides our partners a competitive
advantage in the TV Everywhere game."  
Atlantic Broadband, who recently signed with TiVo, will be the first
U.S. cable operator to put forward this tailored mobile experience
for subscribers. When Atlantic Broadband launches their TiVo solution
in the fall, it will include the TiVo mobile applications in addition
to TiVo's complete STB solution (multi-room DVR and HD-STB).  
The operator mobile apps 'powered by TiVo' provide cable subscribers
an easy-to-use interface to find great stuff to watch, see what's
coming up next through the TiVo Live Guide or browse/search TV and
movies. And these features work for all operator users -- not just
those with a TiVo STB. These customers can also explore and learn
even more about their favorite TV shows, movies, actors and
directors. For subscribers with TiVo devices, they will also have the
ability to remotely schedule recordings, Wish List(R) and Season
Pass(R) recordings, manage the DVR's To Do and Season Pass lists, and
control their device with the mobile app's remote control
functionality. Finally, when paired with a TiVo Stream and an iOS
device, users can stream content within the home network and
side-load recordings to take on the road.  
TiVo's recently released "What to Watch Now" gives users a
personalized dashboard combining recommendations and personal
preferences to present viewers exactly the content they want most
anytime they turn on their TV. The What to Watch Now feature displays
suggestions in six columns categorized by what's popular based on
viewership data and geography, sports on now (powered by Thuuz),
movies on now, favorite channels, kids programming on now and
surfaces your most recent recordings. This discovery feature enhances
the value of cable packages by keeping customers engaged instead of
turning away to other content sources. 
Mobile apps 'powered by TiVo' are flexibly built so that the app is
ready to integrate seamlessly into cable operator extensions (e.g.
customer help, billing, account management, etc.). Additionally, the
mobile apps' overall branding is easily customized so that operators'
unique branding is front and center while still retaining the proven
easy-to-use interface.  
TiVo's applications are easy to deploy. The customer searches the
appropriate App store for the MSO brand, finds the App and logs in
using their existing MSO credentials via an integration with the
operator identity system using SAML authentication (Security
Assertion Markup Language).

D.C.
