TiVo Inc. provides video technology software services and cloud-based software-as-a-service solutions. The company’s software and cloud-based services provide an all-in-one approach for navigating ‘content chaos’ by combining live, recorded, video on demand (VOD), and over-the-top (such as Netflix, Amazon, Hulu Plus, Vudu, and YouTube, among others) content into one intuitive user interface with simple universal search, discovery, viewing and recording, creating a unified viewing experience. This experience is distributed both directly to consumers and through distribution relationships with approximately 70 television service providers who utilize some or all of TiVo’s software, hardware, and cloud services to power their own television products. As of January 31, 2016, the company had distribution relationships with television service providers representing 90 million households worldwide, as well as close to 1 million direct to consumer relationships. Technology The company has developed a technology portfolio that makes the TiVo service available on a standalone retail digital video recorder (DVR) product line that is capable of receiving over-the-air digital signals, cable through the use of CableCARDs, and from broadband video sources. The TiVo service is also deployed directly by approximately 20 pay-TV operators worldwide. The company also offers search and discovery products through its Digitalsmiths Corporation (Digitalsmiths) product and advanced television experiences for emerging markets through its Cubiware Sp. Z.o.o. (Cubiware) product. The company’s strategy is to sign additional distribution agreements to make the TiVo service and products available on additional set-top boxes and mobile devices, such as tablets or computers and other connected devices. It also offers data analytics solutions for advertisers, agencies and TV networks in the television industry through the sale of cross-platform audience research data by its subsidiary, TiVo Research and Analytics, Inc. (TiVo Research). TiVo Service Client Software: The TiVo service client software functions on set-top boxes, and as an app on tablets, and mobile devices, which run the TiVo software. The company has improved the client software to support multiple services and applications, such as receipt of broadband video content, digital music, and photos. The TiVo client software manages interaction with the TiVo service infrastructure in the cloud. After the initial set-up of the TiVo service, the TiVo-enabled set-top box would automatically connect to the TiVo service infrastructure through broadband connection to download the program guide data, client software upgrades, advertising content, and other broadband content. The company has also enabled the TiVo service client software to operate on certain third-party set-top boxes, such as on a Cisco Systems, Inc.; Samsung; and ARRIS Group, Inc. manufactured set-top boxes. TiVo and Digitalsmiths Service Infrastructure: The TiVo service infrastructure operates the TiVo service, managing the distribution of proprietary services, and specialized content, such as program guide data, interactive advertising, and TiVo client software upgrades. It interfaces with the company’s billing and customer support systems for service authorization and bug tracking, among other activities. In addition, the TiVo service infrastructure collects anonymous viewing information uploaded from TiVo-enabled set-top boxes for use in recommendations and personalization, and the company’s audience data analytics efforts. The infrastructure has also been designed to work with the networks of service provider customers. Cubiware Middleware: As of January 31, 2016, the company acquired Cubiware, a privately-held provider of software solutions for emerging market pay-TV operators, based in Warsaw, Poland. Cubiware provides middleware solutions targeted towards pay-TV operators - cable, satellite, terrestrial, and telecommunications operators - in developing and emerging markets worldwide who want to introduce advanced TV services to their networks.
