TiVo Corporation (NASDAQ: TIVO), a global provider of entertainment technology and audience insights, has announced that Midco®, a regional cable provider, has selected TiVo´s Next-Gen Platform to give its subscribers a superior entertainment discovery experience, the company said.

In business for nearly 90 years, Midco has long been an innovator and provider of cable, television and telecommunications, serving customers in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Kansas.

Midco will utilize the Next-Gen Platform to seamlessly transition to IPTV by deploying TiVo´s IPTV suite of solutions, including IPVOD, IP Linear, Restart, Catch-Up and Network DVR, across a host of clients.
