TiVo Stream Launched in Three More Communities

 

Today we announced the availability of TiVo® Stream service in Cabot, Ark., and Brenham and Burkburnett, Texas.  TiVo Stream allows customers to stream TV shows around the house wirelessly on iPod Touch, iPads and iPhones, and also transfer DVR-recorded programs to the same mobile devices for later viewing on the go.

Ability to transfer some programs to TiVo Stream devices may be prohibited by the program owners. Android devices and access to video-on-demand content will be added later.

Since October 2012, TiVo Stream has been launched in more than 60 Suddenlink communities in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina and Texas. We expect to further expand the availability of TiVo Stream to additional markets in the near future.
