Step away from Google, Amazon, Roku: TiVo is coming to smart TV

Do you remember TiVo? In the days before cable cutting, proprietary DVRs were ubiquitous – so much so that the term “TiVo it” was used interchangeably to mean recording a TV program. Now, the company is back as a third-party smart interface alternative to Google, Amazon, and Roku on top 4K TVs, with the first TiVo-powered kits expected to arrive in mid-2023 in both Europe and the United States.

This information comes from a business streaming publication Another televisionwho, quoting directly from TiVo Xperi CEO Jon Kirchner, also posted the news that the TiVo Stream platform will be bundled with “a leading layer 2 provider that produces multiple TVs under different brands.”
