TiVo Launches New Streaming Device, the TiVo Stream 4K
TiVo announced the launch of their new TiVo Stream 4K — a streaming player with live TV and Cloud DVR from the Sling TV app. The TiVo Stream 4K will use Sling TV as the preferred source for subscription TV, but it will also integrate other streaming services such as HBO, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube.
“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 comes with a device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV that helps to deliver Dolby Atmos sound and Dolby Vision HDR for optimum sound. The device also comes with TiVo’s “peanut” remote control for voice search.
The company will market TiVo Stream 4K in partnership with multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) to sell the device their broadband-only subscribers. Thus far, TiVo has partnered with Schurz Communications. TiVo Stream 4K will be available to customers in April 2020 with a launch price of $49.99. The device will be available via TiVo.com and other popular retail sales channels.
