Grande taps TiVo for DVRs
Grande Communications has settled on TiVo's Premiere as the only DVR it will distribute.
Grande Communications is on record as a customer of Motorola set-tops.
TiVo said its multi-room solution will become the foundation of Grande's advanced TV service, which will combine linear television, Internet-delivered video and interactive applications, as well as Grande's VOD service.
Grande President Matt Murphy said: "The ability to deliver a truly differentiated video service in an already crowded environment is by no means an easy task. For us, the search for a partner to help us bring the most dynamic advanced television viewing experience to our customers began and ended with TiVo.
"TiVo's deep understanding of how to successfully integrate cable and broadband content on a single set-top platform will enable our viewers to easily navigate, search and discover content from across traditional television channels, the Internet and our own VOD library in a simple, intuitive fashion that is unlike anything else available on the market today."
Texas-based Grande Communications offers Internet, TV and phone services to residential and business customers through its hybrid fiber-optic network. Grande serves the following communities: Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Midland, Odessa, San Antonio, San Marcos and Waco.
