As part of an ongoing collaboration, ARRIS and TiVo have announced that the latter's software and cloud-based services will be ported to the broadcast technology maker's set-top-boxes and gateways.

"Now, providers can choose ARRIS's innovative hardware to deliver the signature TiVo service for entertainment, anytime, anywhere, and across a variety of screens. We look forward to collaborating with ARRIS to bring this compelling feature set to more customers around the world."
