Com Hem developing multiple platform TV services with TiVo

26 Jun 2012

Sweden’s largest cable TV network operator Com Hem has signed a deal with US-based TiVo to develop a new range of ‘anytime, anywhere’ content and interactive services across multiple platforms, which it expects to launch in spring 2013. According to the cableco, the new offering will include access over IPTV set-top boxes, PCs and wireless devices such as tablets. Planned features include: a ‘one-stop shop’ where consumers will be able to navigate all available digital entertainment content across various devices; a ‘universal search’ enabling subscribers to search across all content including linear TV, video-on-demand (VoD), pay-per-view (PPV) and web-based over-the-top ‘OTT/play’ services; and ‘TiVo Everywhere’ features allowing users to access their content on mobile devices including tablets and smartphones or over the internet anywhere in Sweden regardless of whether the content is sourced from the cloud or their set-top box.
