TiVo debuts boxed set for cable operators at The Cable Show

CHICAGO - Apparently deciding that it's better to try to join cable than fight it, TiVo (Nasdaq: TIVO) is using this week's Cable Show to debut two set-top options and an enhanced iPad app that integrates with cable video services.

The DVR pioneer, which recently settled long-time litigation with the Dish Network (Nasdaq: DISH), partnered with Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) on a retail play and cozied up to several MSOs, is using cable's big party to unveil a quad-tuner gateway and a non-DVR HD set-top box-something that's really radical since DVR is what TiVo does ... or did.

TiVo said that RCN, not technically a part of cable's inner brotherhood, will offer subscribers the new boxes later this year and that Suddenlink Communications "expects to offer the new boxes at some point," according to a story in Multichannel News.
