Armstrong has chosen TiVo's (NASDAQ:TIVO) Next-Gen Platform to support a suite of cloud-based IP video services on multiple screens. Armstrong operates in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland.

Armstrong will use the TiVo platform to support IP VOD, IP linear, restart, catchup, and network DVR services to managed set-top-boxes powered by Android TV or Linux to unmanaged consumer-owned devices such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and mobile.

Features include voice-activated remote control functionality, a newly designed user interface, personalization, search and recommendations, conversational voice control, universal discovery across content sources, and a consistent user experience across all devices.

"We are thrilled to be working with TiVo on our next generation video platform," said Jeff Ross, president at Armstrong. "Our business is built on continued innovation, and TiVo's industry-leading solutions enable us to deliver superior entertainment experiences that our customers deserve."

"TiVo's Next-Gen Platform enables Armstrong to demonstrate market leadership by bringing trailblazing innovations and must-have features to its customers," said Jeffrey Glahn, vice president of sales, TiVo. "We are pleased that Armstrong has chosen TiVo as its trusted partner in the transition to IPTV and we look forward to bringing this robust solution to additional operators in the future."

TiVo inked a similar deal with RCN last week.
