Atlantic Broadband has launched TiVo's (NASDAQ:TIVO) new Unified Entertainment System in its Virginia service areas including Westmoreland, Warsaw, Tappahannock, Bowling Green, Colonial Beach, King George, Mathews, Northumberland, Saluda and surrounding communities.
The new entertainment platform features a user interface (UI) with intuitive navigation and enhanced functionality, personalized viewing recommendations and a remote with conversational voice control.
Content also is searchable across multiple sources, including live TV, DVR recordings, video on demand (VOD) and streaming apps, including Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO and MLB.TV. The new TiVo Entertainment System also allows customers to access content on multiple screens, both in and out of the home.
"The new experience is not only visually beautiful, but will transform the TV experience for our customers," said Heather McCallion, vice president of Products and Programming for Atlantic Broadband. "Sophisticated, advanced technology powers the new interface, but it's amazingly simple to use and will make it easier for customers to find and enjoy the shows they love to watch. We are pleased to bring this major product enhancement to Atlantic Broadband's markets as we continue to innovate on behalf of the customers we serve."

In conjunction with the launch of TiVo Entertainment System, Atlantic Broadband has introduced a new VOD platform that increases the number of on-demand choices, while delivering the content to customers on the viewing device of their choice.
Atlantic Broadband started deploying the TiVo UI in July and has since expanded it to parts of South Carolina, Maryland, Delaware and now Virginia.
