TiVo announced TiVo Stream 4K, an easy-to-use streamer with live TV and Cloud DVR from the Sling TV app, plus content services.
TiVo Stream 4K will launch with Sling TV as the preferred source for subscription TV. TiVo’s user experience and personalized discovery features will integrate with the Sling TV app.
TiVo Stream 4K will also provide integration with multiple online video services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, YouTube and more. Additionally, the product will feature TiVo+ as the preferred source of free, ad-sponsored television and movies.
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. Combined with a streamlined version of TiVo’s “peanut” remote control enabling conversational voice search, all you need is a broadband internet connection in order to start streaming – no subscription fees required.
The Sling TV app will be available on the TiVo Stream 4K box and Sling content listings will be surfaced via universal search. Sling subscribers will be able to search for their favorite shows on the TiVo Stream 4K interface—or by speaking into their Voice Remote—and a wide variety of shows offered by Sling TV will be presented alongside the free channels offered through TiVo+.
TiVo will also market TiVo Stream 4K in partnership with multichannel video programming distributors (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.
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 popular retail sales channels.
