MUMBAI: TiVo Corporation, a leader in entertainment technology and audience insights, has announced that KDDI Corporation, a leading Japanese telecommunications provider, has selected TiVo’s remote recording service for G-GuideÒ and will also implement new voice control features to deliver one of the most advanced entertainment discovery experiences in Japan.

KDDI has deployed TiVo’s latest G-Guide HTML on its Cable Plus Set-Top Boxes (STB) to provide customers with the ability to find and discover programming. This capability is an enhancement to KDDI’s existing deployment of the G-Guide HTML for IPTV STBs last year, enabling KDDI to deliver an expanded range of solutions to cable TV service providers.

KDDI has also adopted TiVo’s remote recording service and mobile application, G-Guide xD, allowing subscribers to record programs at any time right from their smart phones, enabling greater convenience and accessibility to the latest entertainment. This feature is available to service providers for the first time in Japan.

With the new voice control features, subscribers can find content quickly and change between channels by giving verbal commands to the cable STB remote control, thus connecting to their favorite entertainment with ease. This is the first deployment of the voice control feature for G-Guide HTML in Japan.

“We are very pleased to be working with KDDI to introduce these advanced functions to the Japanese market,” said TiVo SVP & GM - user experience Michael Hawkey. “Japanese consumers are often ahead of the curve when it comes to technology adoption so this latest development is a testament to KDDI’s dedication to providing its customers with new functionality to enhance their entertainment experience.”
