SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 12, 2013) - TiVo Inc. (NASDAQ: TIVO), a global leader in the advanced television entertainment market, today announced the launch of "Operation Home Screen," an effort to show appreciation for the men and women serving in the U.S. Military, through entertainment. To start, a cooperation with Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in San Diego enables TiVo to give 50 service men and women the opportunity to enjoy TV programming from home while stationed abroad.

"Our troops abroad deserve any gesture of kindness we can provide. As a small expression of gratitude, TiVo is delivering what only the TiVo Roamio can provide -- access to live TV, recorded shows and movies and downloaded recordings anywhere in the world," said Doug Bieter, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at TiVo. "Operation Home Screen leverages the unparalleled Roamio offering for brave men and women around the world in service to our country. Service members' favorite shows, sports teams and stateside local news will be streaming straight to their tablet or smartphone no matter where they are stationed this holiday season. We are thrilled to make our season's greeting to our troops a gift we know means a lot -- a small slice of home."

In the first phase of Operation Home Screen 50 service members along with their families from Camp Pendleton will be given a TiVo Roamio™ Plus with Product Lifetime Service to enjoy local programming on a portable device, providing the same access to content as if they were watching it on the TV at home. By leveraging the Out-of-Home Streaming capability of a new TiVo Roamio DVR, they will be able to stream live or recorded programming into faraway non-combat zones via tablets and smartphones.
