Netflix is getting help with its set-top box gambit from TiVo


While Netflix(s nflx) has been met with strong resistance in the U.S. for its desire to bring an app directly to cable set-top boxes, there is one company solidly in its corner: TiVo. Bloomberg reports that regional providers that rely on set-top boxes from TiVo for its customers, like Cox Communications Inc., Suddenlink Communications, and RCN Telecom Services, are discussing an integration of Netflix through the TiVo platform. The arrangement would be an expansion of the partnership TiVo and Netflix have built (most recently expressed in TiVo’s latest model).
