TiVo TVs to debut in North America in 2024
Xperi plans to break into the North American smart TV market next year with models that are powered by the TiVo operating system.
Xperi, TiVo's parent company, has danced around the idea of expanding its smart TV initiative into North America in recent quarters, but confirmed that it will indeed enter the region with TiVo-powered TV next year with multiple TV manufacturing partners.
The decision to pitch TVs equipped with TiVo's platform in North America will pit Xperi against a formidable group of smart TV platform competitors. They include Amazon (Fire TV), Google (Android TV/Google TV), Roku, Samsung (Tizen), LG Electronics (webOS) and Xumo, the national streaming joint venture of Comcast and Charter Communications. Telly, a new player on the scene, is offering free, ad-supported connected TVs.
