Hi. We're TiVo.

We’re always innovating to create the ultimate entertainment experience. We touch the lives of binge-watching, music-loving, entertainment fanatics every day by delivering beautiful user experiences and enabling the world’s leading media and entertainment providers to nurture more meaningful relationships with their audiences.

Our technology inventions run deep – from the creation of the interactive program guide to the DVR – and we continue to revolutionize how people find content in a chaotic, fragmented media landscape. It’s this “content chaos” and insatiable demand for media and entertainment that keep us inspired – to create products and licensable technology that ultimately enable people to find and enjoy the TV, movies and music they love.
