TiVo said it has expanded its multi-year patent license agreement with Google that includes YouTube TV, the OTT TV service launched last April.
Financial terms were not announced, but TiVo said the agreement covers Google’s use of TiVo’s patented technologies worldwide, and offers a license for Google’s products and services across internet-based platforms and devices.

Last week, Rovi Corp, a unit of TiVo, filed two lawsuits against Comcast that take aim at the features and capabilities offered on the MSO’s X1 platform, and assert a total of eight patents.
Comcast countered that X1 was developed independently by its own engineers, arguing that Rovi’s is attempting to extract “unfounded payments for its aging and increasingly obsolete patent portfolio…”
