TiVo Integrates 4K Streaming Software With YouTube TV

TiVo April 5 announced that its branded “Stream 4K” and “TiVo Stream OS” are now integrated with online platform YouTube TV — the first such support of its kind among streaming products, according to TiVo.

TiVo Stream 4K affords users with a customizable program guide designed to bring together multiple streaming services and favorite channels into the functionality of a TV guide. The service offers national broadcast affiliates, including ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, along with premier sports and news channels such as ESPN, NFL Network and PBS.

“As TiVo’s business has evolved from pioneering digital video recording to streaming products and services, our success has been grounded in understanding consumer preferences and delivering exactly what consumers want,” Ben Maughan, GM of stream platform, said in a statement. “The YouTube TV addition represents the largest content-related integration update since the launch of TiVo Stream 4K. Providing consumers with an integrated experience that includes premier live TV with a partner like YouTube TV is a significant step to becoming a leading streaming platform in the market.”
