TiVo to demo next-generation cloud-based Roamio PVR enhancements

updated 06:42 pm EDT, Wed September 11, 2013

New technology aimed at better experience for both customers and providers

TiVo today announced that it would debut a prototype of its next-generation cloud television offering, which includes new TiVo features delivered with a Network PVR, during the International Broadcasting Conference 2013 (IBC) in Amsterdam. The new time-shifting viewing technology is slated to integrate social media sharing, as well as features designed to help content providers implement better advertising for recorded content.

In addition to moving the newly-launched Roamio PVR experience to the cloud, TiVo would be enabling operators and programmers to manage complex content rights, create multiple tiers of network PVR features, and enable multiscreen policies needed for the inevitable shift to IP-provided video. For instance, operators deploying TiVo network PVR could offer a premium nPVR service with expanded catch-up and save options.

TiVo plans to enable new consumer features that enable co-viewing experiences through social networks and recommendations across disparate libraries of content. TiVo's nPVR service would allow a viewer to share a recorded program with an authorized user who missed the show with a few clicks of the remote control.

Few firm details about the hardware or service are currently known. The suite of products that support the new initiative are likely to be shown in the next few weeks.
