Staff Report From Aiken CEO

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018

Atlantic Broadband, the nation’s 9th largest cable operator, announced that it has launched TiVo’s new Unified Entertainment System for its existing and new customers in Aiken, South Carolina and surrounding areas it serves including Graniteville, Jackson, New Ellenton and Warrenville.

With TiVo’s new Unified Entertainment System, the on-screen user interface has been completely redesigned with a modern, sleek, horizontal navigation system that is highly appealing. Cutting-edge technology delivers personalized, tailored programming recommendations, so customers will be able to find what they want to watch quickly and easily.

The new voice remote, a key element of the platform upgrade, takes search and discovery to a new level, providing fast, highly-accurate results of searched-for programs, even when only part of a title or a key word is spoken. With the voice remote, customers say what they want to watch and view it instantly.

Content also is searchable across multiple sources, including live TV, DVR recordings, Video On Demand and streaming apps, including Netflix, You Tube, HBO GO and MLB.TV. The upgrade also allows customers to access content on multiple screens across TVs, smartphones, tablets and more, both in-home and on-the-go.
 
“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 their favorite shows. 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.”

Other notable features include:

SmartBar – A new search feature connects customers to what they are most likely to watch at a given time of day or day of the week.

My Shows List – Contains categories that help customers quickly locate their favorite shows and recordings. With this feature, customers can highlight a category such as “Kids” to view only kids’ shows. This can be personalized and saved for even easier browsing.

QuickView - Gives customers a sneak-peak at their favorite channels, other tuners, the SmartBar or a mini-guide that lets customers browse the program guide one channel at a time – all without leaving full-screen TV.

“We are excited to share this new TiVo upgrade with our South Carolina customers,” said Debbie Eblen, Atlantic Broadband Vice President and General Manager, South Carolina. “This upgrade, including the new voice remote, makes it easier than ever for customers to find what they want to watch, quickly and accurately. This news brings next-level personalization and convenience that customers will enjoy.”

In conjunction with the launch of TiVo’s Unified Entertainment System, Atlantic Broadband has introduced new Video On Demand technology that substantially increases the number of on-demand choices available, while quickly and efficiently delivering the content to customers on the viewing device of their choice.
