Wave Broadband adding TiVo boxes, streaming

Kirkland-based Wave Broadband announced today that it will provide TiVo set-top boxes and devices for streaming video around the house and beyond, starting this summer.

TiVo’s latest products — including the “Roamio” digital-video recorder and smaller boxes that stream video around the home and to mobile devices — are aimed at smaller cable companies, as well as consumers. They give regional cable companies an offering comparable to the advanced set-top boxes and streaming services developed by larger players such as Comcast.

Wave isn’t yet saying how much it will charge for the TiVo products, but other cable companies have charged about  $10 per month more for the TiVo hardware than their standard DVRs. It will offer TiVo’s T6 DVR, which is a version of the Roamio for cable companies.

Wave plans to continue offering its current hardware, and customers won’t have to upgrade to TiVo gear, a spokesman said.

Digital-cable customers can also buy the Roamio outright instead of rent it from a cable company. The boxes start at $199 plus a $15 per month service fee.

Kirkland-based Wave has 415,000 customers in Washington, Oregon and California.
