With TiVo's cloud services already powering the industry's most fully-featured suite of multi-screen applications, including IP set-tops, tablets, smartphones, and web portals, TiVo announced that it is broadening the range of 3rd party set-top boxes (STBs) supporting TiVo's services including set-top boxes running Cubiware and Entone software.

We have the broadest portfolio of third-party hardware providers to choose from, including clients ranging from full TiVo clients leveraging TiVo's HPK, to TV Everywhere clients, and now, new thin client STBs (such as Entone and wide range of devices running Cubiware's Middleware). The continued expansion in the number of technology partners supporting TiVo's product and service offerings underscores TiVo's relentless commitment to bringing an unmatched television viewing experience to our customers and their subscribers, and we look forward to showcasing the results of our recent efforts at IBC."
