Comcast Restores Remote DVR Recording Function After TiVo Patents Expire | Light Reading

TiVo counters expiration of two patents have ‘no impact’ on the company’s licensing deals and reinstatement of feature is ‘implicit admission’ of value of TiVo’s tech.

Following the expiration of two TiVo patents, Comcast restored a remote DVR recording function for video streaming apps for web browsers and mobile devices.

Comcast pulled the remote DVR scheduling function from its Xfinity Stream app for mobile devices and web browsers in November 2017 following a “limited exclusion order” handed down by the International Trade Commission (ITC) favoring TiVo. That represented just one scrum in an extended patent battle occurring between Comcast and TiVo at the ITC and in multiple US civil courts.
