Australia’s Foxtel Renews Licensing Agreement for TiVo’s Personalized Discovery Platform

Australian pay-TV operator Foxtel has renewed its agreement to license TiVo’s search and recommendation technology services.

In 2016, Foxtel made the decision to shelf its Q3 set-top box platform, moving to a solution combining Arris hardware and TiVo software. In July of 2017, Foxtel, which is jointly owned by News Corp. and Telstra, renewed its intellectual property agreement with TiVo.

“Foxtel’s continued investment and trust in TiVo’s personalized discovery capabilities demonstrates our innovation leadership and differentiation in such a competitive landscape,” said Samuel Sweet, senior VP of sales EMEA and APAC, for TiVo, in a statement.

Added Michael Ivanchenko, Foxtel’s director of Product Design & Development: “Foxtel has a legacy of driving innovation across the Australian television landscape TiVo’s solutions are a strong contributor in helping us to stay at the forefront of bringing the latest entertainment services to our viewers.”
