SAN JOSE, CA and QUINCY, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/13 -- TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in the advanced television entertainment market, and Atlantic Broadband, the nation's 12th largest cable operator offering bundled TV, Internet and Phone services, today announced from the NCTA 2013 Cable show in Washington, D.C. that Atlantic Broadband has partnered exclusively with TiVo to power its slate of digital entertainment services across TV, Web and Mobile platforms. Atlantic Broadband is the first U.S. MSO to leverage TiVo's complete product suite which delivers a unified experience that spans whole home DVR, HD Set tops for non DVR households, access to Internet delivered video and applications, and multi-screen viewing experiences delivered through a smart online portal and an Atlantic Broadband customized mobile application.

David Isenberg, Atlantic Broadband's Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer, said, "TiVo is now doing for multi-screen TV entertainment just what they did with the launch of their DVR over a decade ago -- pioneering a new way for consumers to get more value and convenience from their TV services. Increasingly, consumers are watching shows from many different sources on all sorts of screens both in their home and on the go. But, we think it's still much too hard for consumers to find the shows they care about quickly and easily on any screen across many content sources. We sought a solution from a single provider that could address these needs in a unified fashion across TV, web and mobile devices. After an extensive search, TiVo was the only provider that met all of our requirements with a proven solution we could deploy quickly. TiVo will propel our offering ahead of our satellite and Telco competitors and makes Atlantic Broadband the obvious choice for consumers demanding access to incredible amounts of television and web based content plus the ability to access it whenever, wherever and on any screen they want."

Jeff Klugman, TiVo's EVP of Products & Revenue, said, "Our partnership with Atlantic Broadband will result in an unprecedented delivery of a unified whole-home viewing experience combining our Emmy Award winning user interface with Atlantic Broadband's market leading video on demand, traditional linear channel lineup, pay per view and TV Everywhere catalogs on all of Atlantic Broadband's customer screens -- TV, web, tablet and mobile. This co-branded offering will bring content from multiple sources, screens and devices to Atlantic Broadband customers. It will also enable ABB's triple play subscription to stand out among their larger competitors. We are committed to building on our track record of rapid operator deployments to deliver this next-generation entertainment solution as cost effectively as possible and we are thrilled to be partnering with Atlantic Broadband."

Atlantic Broadband will commence rollout later this year, offering the full suite of TiVo products and services to its subscribers, including TiVo's multi-room DVR solution, the TiVo Preview HD Set Top, and TiVo's complete whole-home solutions including TiVo Stream, TiVo Web Portal, and TiVo Mobile Applications for IOS and Android. These products all offer TiVo's highly regarded unified discovery, search, navigation and recommendation features which will enable Atlantic Broadband customers to experience the best TV services anywhere, anytime.
