Altice Portugal’s Meo platform deployed Microsoft Mediaroom – subsequently sold to Ericsson – to power its IPTV service. TiVo became involved in a legal dispute with the Portuguese operator last year, alleging it had failed to pay certain licensing fees related to its interactive programme guide after Microsoft sold its TV unit.
“The union of Altice Portugal and TiVo is an endorsement to our leadership in delivering the ultimate entertainment experience to consumers worldwide. Thanks to our innovative IP, Altice Portugal can deliver world class TV and compelling consumer experiences to over a million homes in Portugal,” said Arvin Patel, executive vice president and chief IP officer, Rovi Corporation, a TiVo company.
“Altice Portugal’s IP renewal with TiVo is testament to our continued momentum in building an innovative IP portfolio across Europe. Our continued recent momentum in licensing multiple service providers in Europe this year, demonstrates how this market is an exciting area of growth for the whole TiVo business,” said Samuel Sweet, SVP Sales, EMEAR at TiVo.
