TiVo Unveils a Streaming Player to Compete with Roku, Fire TV, & More

Today, TiVo announced the launch of the TiVo Stream 4K, a streaming player that provides seamless integration with online video services including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, YouTube and more. With the TiVo Stream 4K, you won’t need to toggle between apps but will get a more traditional TV experience.

Sling TV will be the preferred source for subscription TV, along with featuring TiVo+ as the preferred source of free, ad-sponsored television and movies.

TiVo users will appreciate the familiar user experience, from personalized discovery features to the user friendly TiVo remote.

“With TiVo Stream 4K, we have created a dramatically better experience for viewers who are tired of hunting through apps and interfaces to find the amazing content available through online content providers,” said Dave Shull, president and CEO, TiVo. “We are excited to help TV lovers and occasional viewers alike make the most of their time in front of the screen and bring together the best of the streaming and TV experiences.”

TiVo Stream 4K includes a small device that plugs into the HDMI port on your television, delivering the highest quality audio and video up to and including Dolby Atmos sound and Dolby Vision HDR. The device also comes with a streamlined version of the TiVo remote with a voice search feature.

As the preferred source of subscription TV, the Sling TV app will be readily available on the TiVo Stream 4K box and Sling content listings will be surfaced via universal search.

“Our subscribers are always looking for new ways to quickly find content they enjoy,” said Warren Schlichting, executive vice president and group president, Sling TV. “This strategic relationship will not only help our current subscribers rediscover TiVo, it will make it easier for new Sling subscribers to make the transition to streaming video.”

TiVo will also market TiVo Stream 4K in partnership with MVPDs to enable them to leverage TiVo Stream 4K to benefit their broadband-only subscribers. Schurz Communications is the first MVPD to commit to a co-marketing relationship with TiVo.

“Schurz is thrilled to be working with TiVo on this exciting project,” said Tom Williams, CTO, Schurz Communications. “TiVo Stream 4K will enhance the relationship Schurz has with our very important broadband-only subscribers.”

The TiVo Stream 4K will be available to customers beginning April 2020 with initial launch pricing of $49.99 (MSRP of $69.99), and will be available via TiVo.com and other retailers.
