What does Liberty Global's purchase of Virgin Media mean for TiVo?

Well....not much really.

Following reports that the US-based Liberty Global was interested in buying Virgin - well, they didn't mess about. With a speed which would turn Virgin's TV channel negotiation team green with envy, Liberty Global sealed the deal in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Repercussions for Virgin's TV customers? None, yet. The company will still be called Virgin Media and despite Liberty Global owning their own STB software, Liberty will continue to use TiVo. If anything, the deal seems more about using Virgin's expertise within Liberty Global's existing cable operations, which operates in several European markets.
