TiVo and Google renew patent partnership

TiVo has announced a long-term renewal of its patent license with Google.

The agreement will see Google continue to have broad coverage under TiVo’s patent portfolios, and extends a relationship first established in 2012.

TiVo, which became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation in June 2020, has spent decades investing in R&D for technologies deployed across the media and entertainment industry. The company holds a global patent portfolio of more than 5,000 patents. 

Samir Armaly, president, IP licensing of Xperi, said: “We are very pleased to conclude this agreement with Google, a world leader in OTT video with YouTube and Google TV, and a top 10 US Pay-TV provider with YouTube TV. 

“Google has always worked to bring content to the screen that’s most convenient for users. This agreement illustrates the relevance of TiVo’s innovations across all forms of video consumption, from linear to on-demand, and from traditional TV platforms to online and mobile.”
