The 415,000 residential and business customers who receive their cable and Internet services from Wave Broadband and Astound in the Pacific Northwest will get access to co-branded versions of TiVo’s (Nasdaq: TIVO) whole home products and services as part of an overarching partnership between TiVo and Wave Division Holdings.
Products that include TiVo’s set-top boxes as well as its cloud-based service, whole home gateway DVR, TiVo Mini and TiVo Stream, will roll out by the middle of 2014, the two companies said in a press release. Additionally, TiVo will supply DTAs and a “multi-screen experience through TiVo, Web, iOS and Android mobile applications.”
Wave CEO Steve Weed predicted that the relationship “will bring a new standard of viewing experience to our key markets” in Washington, Oregon and California, including those in the San Francisco Bay area.
Weed added that merging Wave and TiVo into a co-branded service “will bring a new standard of viewing experience to our key markets while providing an optimized combination of all the great Wave and Astound content available now, plus access to new broadband content.”
