Grouper and TiVo Partner to Put TV and Movies Front and Center of the Social Scene

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 -- TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a leader in advanced television services and the creator of digital video recorders (DVRs), and Grouper, a technology-based social club, announced today a partnership that will integrate TV and movie themes into the novel Grouper experience. The partnership, rolling out in late August, will create integrated brand experiences in select markets by offering TV trivia during Grouper gatherings, themed parties and photo challenges.

"We look forward to working together with a brand that shares our passion for bringing people together, and we are excited for how this will improve the experience for our members," said Michael Waxman, Grouper Founder & CEO. "When people meet for the first time, TV and movies are often times the ultimate ice-breaker conversation. This partnership will facilitate our goal of bringing people closer together by injecting pop culture into the mix."

Without a doubt, Grouper and TiVo share a lot in common. They both shattered the traditional rules of their industries: TiVo invented the DVR and in the process reinvented the way we consume television and changed an industry forever; and Grouper improved on traditional ways people meet by organizing meet-ups between two groups of friends, rewriting the cultural rule book and re-defining friendship and love. In addition, both brands are focused on bringing people together, with Grouper's mission to end loneliness by uniting people offline, and TiVo's by providing the ultimate television experience and giving consumers all video content, anywhere, anytime.

"We're ecstatic to partner with an innovative, emerging brand with a young, connected demographic that understands and seeks what TiVo delivers -- a television experience that brings together the best of all television -- streaming apps and cable TV -- anywhere, anytime and on any device," said Doug Bieter, TiVo's VP for Consumer Sales and Marketing. "Grouper's passion for creating a personalized, fun experience for their customers captures the essence of what we do for lovers of TV. We look forward to seamlessly supporting the Grouper experience with TiVo technology in a variety of capacities."

TiVo and Grouper expect to announce additional brand integrations in the coming months, leveraging TiVo's innovative entertainment experience into Grouper's renowned social events. Check out www.tivogrouper.com for further updates.

And, as pointed out by Multichannel, the link in the press release doesn't actually work...

Oh, well that's always a good sign.
