Victoria, Texas, Gets Any-Room DVR Service

Beginning today, Victoria, Texas, customers with TiVo® Premiere DVRs from Suddenlink will be able to begin watching a program in one room and continue it in another, as well as watch recordings on any TV connected to a TiVo Premiere device.

New options are the result of software enhancements. For example, Suddenlink customers with three TiVo Premiere DVRs can record up to six shows at the same time, watch recordings on any TV, start watching in one room and resume in another, and have up to 600 hours of recording space.

The TiVo Premiere, first offered by Suddenlink in 2010, combines the cable operator’s service with TiVo’s best-in-class user interface, providing access to thousands of hours of entertainment choices, including content from Suddenlink’s video-on-demand (VOD) library and the Web, all accessible through TiVo’s advanced search and discovery features. This integration of functions is only available through Suddenlink.

Any-room DVR service has been introduced to customers in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas and West Virginia. This list, while not comprehensive, covers the majority of the communities in which this service was deployed prior to today’s launch in Victoria.  Additional communities will be announced as they’re confirmed.
