"TiVo's Next-Gen Platform enables Armstrong to demonstrate market leadership by bringing trailblazing innovations and must-have features to its customers," said Jeffrey Glahn, vice president of sales, TiVo. "We are pleased that Armstrong has chosen TiVo as its trusted partner in the transition to IPTV and we look forward to bringing this robust solution to additional operators in the future."
