Spanish operator ONO and TiVo have signed a strategic agreement to deploy next generation TV in Spain. Through the combination of its fiber optic network and TiVo’s television user experience, ONO will be able to offer Spanish homes a convergence between Internet and traditional television content.
This partnership establishes ONO as the exclusive distributor of TiVo’s advanced television services in Spain. Similarly, TiVo will become the exclusive software provider for all next generation set-top boxes deployed by ONO, including both PVR platforms and traditional non-PVR set top boxes. ONO and TiVo also expect to collaborate on solutions that make the TiVo experience available to consumers beyond ONO’s cable footprint in conjunction with terrestrial and Internet delivered content – though specifics of these plans were not disclosed.
