The joining of two powerful portfolios: Rovi and TiVo.

Over decades, through legacy companies Rovi Corp. and TiVo Inc., we’ve demonstrated a consistent track record of creating and commercializing new technologies. The renowned Rovi Intellectual Property (IP) Licensing portfolio includes thousands of patents in the interactive program guide category as well as content discovery, OTT, advertising and more. It is complemented by the robust TiVo IP Licensing portfolio, which contains patented technologies in DVR, time-shifting, mobile and beyond.
