TiVo’s Q2 revenues spike 67% after merger; ‘making progress’ on Comcast litigation

TiVo narrowed its net losses to $4.8 million from $9.4 million in the second quarter of 2016.

TiVo Corp. reported a 67% revenue gain to $208.6 million, the spike a result of last year’s acquisition of TiVo Solutions by Rovi Corp. 

TiVo solutions contributed $94.9 million to the bottom line for the combined company, which now goes by the TiVo moniker. TiVo narrowed its net losses to $4.8 million from $9.4 million in the second quarter of 2016.

The tech company signed two notable deals to integrate its video operating system into the services of international pay-TV companies, inking agreements with Australia’s Foxtel, as well as “one of the leading Canadian pay-TV operators.”

TiVo President and CEO Tom Carson said that the company is also “making progress” on patent litigation with Comcast. In June, the International Trade Commission ruled in TiVo’s favor, ruling that set-tops manufactured by Arris and Technicolor for Comcast violated TiVo patents related to program guides and remote access.
