    Vubiquity Launches AnyVU™ Streaming With TiVo

    ViewNow Subscription Movies to Be First Package Featured

    Vubiquity and TiVo to Demo Integrated Solution at The Cable Show, Booth 2007

    SHERMAN OAKS and SAN JOSE, Calif., June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --*Vubiquity, the largest global provider of multiplatform video services, and TiVo today announced a partnership integrating Vubiquity's AnyVU™ Streaming service with the TiVo user experience. AnyVU Streaming allows service providers to quickly launch a multiplatform offering with a deep content library. The TiVo user interface foundation will now allow for integration of ViewNow, Vubiquity's subscription movie package, which offers thousands of HD and SD titles in a variety of formats for viewing on any device.

    AnyVU Streaming for TiVo is an end-to-end multiplatform video solution that allows any service provider to launch TV Everywhere services quickly. Vubiquity's partnership with TiVo allows each organization to focus on its strengths. TiVo provides a consistent user experience across set-top boxes, PCs, tablets and mobile phones, while Vubiquity manages the distribution and streaming of a deep catalog of movie assets, trailers, metadata and artwork directly to an end-user's connected device. Vubiquity and TiVo will demonstrate the integrated AnyVU streaming service, featuring ViewNow content, next week at the Cable Show, booth #2007.

    "TiVo works with numerous service providers to deliver dynamic advanced TV services to all their customers' media devices," said Thomas Elam, TiVo's vice president and general manager, U.S. Service Provider Business. "Vubiquity's ViewNow service brings subscription movies to any device, anywhere, making it a natural addition to our strategy of providing the highest quality TV viewing experience to the subscriber – one that seamlessly and easily allows them to access all the content they love, whenever and wherever they want it."

    ViewNow, which is currently available to more than 10 million U.S. households, offers thousands of hours of movie content from major and independent studios that can be delivered in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 as well as in a range of adaptive bitrate (ABR) profiles to allow for delivery to traditional set-top boxes as well as multi-platform devices such as PC and Mac, iOS and Android phones and tablets, and a range of other connected devices. In addition to multiplatform rights, the service includes download rights on a large number of titles.*

    "The AnyVU Streaming Service enables seamless access to a rich library of content, accelerates time to market, and leverages Vubiquity's economies of scale," said Doug Sylvester, president of Vubiquity. "The combination of AnyVU Streaming, ViewNow, and TiVo enables service providers to launch a complete end-to-end service to consumer devices quickly with the deep content catalog that consumers want and the robust and intuitive user experience that is TiVo's hallmark."

    I am little confused. How does this differ from other services such as Netflix or Amazon?

    So, basically another third-party movie streaming service. I've Googled a little bit on AnyVU and ViewNow. AnyVu seems to be a new offering by Vubiquity specifically tailored for the Tivo. The ViewNow service appears to be available as an add-on to FiOS for $5.99 a month.

    Sounds like a provider based service. You can't just buy this independently like Amazon or Netflix. Also sounds like it has a rotating catalog, similar to a premium movie channel.
