Comporium, a telco based in South Carolina, is leasing the TiVo Premiere box, which delivers Comporium digital cable channels, including high definition (HD), and Internet video on demand.

With the TiVo Premiere, customers can record up to 45 hours of HD video and access Internet content including YouTube videos, Blockbuster On Demand, Amazon Video On Demand and Pandora Internet Radio. For the advanced features of TiVo Premiere, Comporium cable TV customers will need to subscribe to the company’s HD DVR service and high-speed Internet service and have either a wired or wireless connection.

Comporium is leasing the first TiVo unit for $16.95, which is $10 more per month than the first traditional HD DVR box.  Each additional TiVo Premiere leases for $16.95 per month – $4 more than an additional HD DVR box. Comporium says that customers who order the TiVo Premiere have no upfront cost or term commitment.

Comporium cable TV customers will be able to enjoy multi-room DVR viewing of recorded content with two or more TiVo boxes and will also have the ability to remotely schedule online or from a mobile-enabled wireless phone or data plan for select smartphones (iPhone, Blackberry Torch).

Comporium has been testing the TiVo Premiere for several months following its arrangement with Evolution Digital, which is an authorized provider with TiVo. Evolution Digital already provided Comporium with its low-cost DTA converter when Comporium upgraded its Basic Plus tier to digital from analog in 2009.  Evolution Digital is now selling TiVo Premiere boxes to more than 30 cable operators throughout North America.
