TiVo Files More Patent Lawsuits against Comcast Over X1 Tech

Rovi files patent infringement lawsuits against Comcast

Rovi files patent infringement lawsuits against Comcast

Comcast said it would remove the scheduling feature, which only a small percentage of customers used, so it could continue to offer X1 to customers while it appealed the ITC's ruling.

Rovi Corporation, a TiVo company, and related Rovi affiliates have filed new patent infringement lawsuits against Comcast Corporation in the US District Court for the Central District of California and the U.S. District Court for the District of MA.

The patents at issue in Wednesday's lawsuits were originally granted to Rovi, a provider of digital television guides that merged with Tivo in 2016, and its Andover, Massachusetts-based subsidiary Veveo Inc. However, it said that Rovi plans to file an additional legal action with the US International Trade Commission in which it will seek an exclusion order preventing the X1 set-top boxes from being imported into the US. Rovi Corp., which purchased TiVo Corp.in 2016 for $1.1 billion, rebranding itself as TiVo in the process, holds licenses for more than 5,000 patents and makes the bulk of its revenue from technology licensing. "Rovi's attempt to extract these unfounded payments for its aging and increasingly obsolete patent portfolio has failed to date".

"Through decades-long investment in research and development, Rovi has created innovations that delight consumers in their day-to-day entertainment experience", said Enrique Rodriguez, president and CEO of TiVo, in a statement. Hundreds of media and entertainment leaders around the world recognize the value of our innovations by selecting our products and services and licensing our intellectual property.

The ITC ruled in November that Comcast's X1 platform infringed on two Tivo patents describing a system for s'1cheduling recordings through a smartphone app.
