Armstrong will utilise TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform to transition to IPTV by deploying TiVo’s cloud-powered IPTV suite of solutions, including VOD, IP linear, restart, catch-up and network DVR, across a host of clients. This allows Armstrong to deliver content to managed set-top-boxes powered by Android TVTM or Linux, as well as unmanaged consumer-owned devices such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku and mobile.

In Q4 2018, Armstrong rolled out TiVo Experience 4 and voice-activated remote-control functionality to its entire subscriber base. It features hyper-personalisation, advanced search and recommendations, conversational voice control, universal discovery across content sources and a consistent user experience across all devices.

“We are thrilled to be working with TiVo on our next-generation video platform,” said Jeff Ross, president at Armstrong. “Our business is built on continued innovation, and TiVo’s industry-leading solutions enable us to deliver superior entertainment experiences that our customers deserve.”

Jeffrey Glahn, vice president of sales, TiVo, added: “TiVo’s Next-Gen Platform enables Armstrong to demonstrate market leadership by bringing trailblazing innovations and must-have features to its customers. We are pleased that Armstrong has chosen TiVo as its trusted partner in the transition to IPTV and we look forward to bringing this robust solution to additional operators in the future.”
