GCI brings TiVo to Alaska

Michelle Clancy | 22-08-2012

Alaska's top cableco, GCI, has selected TiVo as its exclusive set-top vendor going forward. GCI will begin initial deployment later this year of a multiscreen service basd on the gear, and will offer TiVo across its footprint by early 2013.

GCI will initially roll out TiVo's Premiere Q 4-tuner gateway DVR, TiVo Mini low-cost IP set-tops and the TiVo Stream, which enables access to content across tablets and smartphones in the home. GCI also intends to be one of the first operators to use the TiVo software and Service in conjunction with the Pace XG1 multi-tuner gateway with integrated DOCSIS and transcoding capabilities.
GCI's TiVo offering combines linear cable television with integrated on-demand and broadband over-the-top (OTT) content through TiVo's user interface, providing a consistent experience for any content on any screen and incorporating personalised recommendations, search and other discovery capabilities.
GCI sees the move as a linchpin to its next-gen TV strategy. "GCI customers deserve the very best television viewing experience possible and the advanced features of the TiVo product will allow us to provide that," said Bob Ormberg, vice president of content and product management at GCI. "After examining the various advanced TV UI solutions for our subscribers, we determined that TiVo's advanced user interface, leading whole home solution and hardware flexibility combined to create the best option available. Additionally, the simplicity with which TiVo presents a vast world of content to every screen, including tablets and smart phones, not only meets our needs today, but is an ideal fit for the future as television evolves."
