TiVo and EarthLink Align to Offer Bundle of TiVo DVR & EarthLink DSL

TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), the creator of and a leader in television services for digital video recorders (DVRs), and EarthLink Inc. (NASDAQ: ELNK), today announced an agreement to offer bundled Internet and television services, through the stand-alone TiVo Series2™ Dual Tuner (DT) DVR and TiVo service and EarthLink branded dial-up, DSL, or digital voice services.

The agreement brings together two companies with a passion for delivering high value services in a simple, safe package for consumers. EarthLink has a reputation for greatly simplifying the broadband experience while TiVo is known for providing television viewers the best way to watch television by making it both simple and easy. Together, EarthLink and TiVo can provide a unique bundle that further enhances EarthLink’s DSL data services with TiVo’s innovative broadband video offerings, including the recently announced Amazon Unbox on TiVo. Subscribers can also receive the traditional features for which TiVo has become known, including Season Pass recordings, WishList searches, online scheduling, TiVo KidZone, TiVoToGo transfers, and TiVo’s easy-to-use online services, all of which extend EarthLink’s delivery of safe, easy-to-use services into the living room.

“TiVo delivers an unmatched DVR experience, bringing all sources of video — broadcast, cable, broadband — together into a seamless interface for the consumer,” said Naveen Chopra, Vice President Corporate Development at TiVo. “We are excited to team up with EarthLink and believe that together we can deliver a powerful combination of the TiVo Service and broadband to consumer living rooms.”

“EarthLink is pleased to offer our customers the opportunity to enhance their online and television experience through the TiVo service,” said Gary Sonnier, Vice President of Consumer Access Products at EarthLink. “This combined offering not only provides customers the simplicity and value of a bundle, but also provides seamless access to the growing portfolio of content and services that are being delivered via the Internet, directly to the living room.”

Demand for DVRs has been one of the primary drivers of bundled entertainment offerings. EarthLink and TiVo can now offer consumers packages that include the leading DVR with DSL access and digital phone service at a lower cost than most alternatives.

EarthLink will begin marketing the bundle later this year. In the future, the parties could utilize TiVoCast to deliver additional content via broadband to EarthLink subscribers who use the TiVo service. Specific pricing and financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
