Taking Customer-Centric Programming to New Heights

Millions of households around the world depend on TiVo for entertainment. From the interactive program guide to the DVR, TiVo delivers innovative products and technologies to both service providers and end customers that revolutionize how people find content across a changing media landscape.

In order to provide these video entertainment solutions, TiVo needs to process and provide data about the video entertainment itself, whether it’s movies, TV shows, cast members or images, and also use other types of data to provide those solutions, such as channels, activation status and channel permissions. In order to optimize those solutions for end users, it’s critical for TiVo to process and analyze data from the end users, including their viewing patterns, device stability, device usage and logs.
