Midcontinent customers can search and view Netflix directly through their TiVo® DVRs.
June 26, 2014 - Sioux Falls, SD: Midcontinent Communications today announced that its customers can now easily find and watch a wide variety of TV shows and movies from Netflix through the same TiVo® (NASDAQ: TIVO) set-top box used to watch live TV.
The Netflix app will be fully integrated into the award-winning TiVo service distributed by Midcontinent. Midcontinent customers who also subscribe to Netflix will be able to access Netflix content directly on their TiVo boxes without having to change TV inputs or devices. A unified search feature will let users find and watch content across live TV, On Demand shows and other channels, including Netflix.
The partnership eliminates the complexity of multiple boxes, remote controls, input ports and cables and seamlessly delivers the Netflix experience to the coveted "biggest screen in the home," creating a home-viewing experience that is both simple and enjoyable. Customers can use their TiVo to easily search, browse and binge on a rich selection of commercial-free TV shows and movies on Netflix, including highly acclaimed original series such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
Customers must subscribe separately to Midcontinent TiVo DVR service and Netflix.
The Netflix offerings from Midcontinent will be available to customers with TiVo service as early as June 24, 2014.
