TiVo, DISH Network and EchoStar Announce Half-Billion Dollar Settlement of Patent Litigation


TiVo, DISH Network, and EchoStar announced today that they have settled all of their ongoing patent litigation involving TiVo's video recording technology, putting an end to a long and costly legal battle.

Under the terms of the settlement, DISH Network and EchoStar agreed to pay TiVo $500 million, including an initial payment of $300 million with the remaining $200 million distributed in six equal annual installments between 2012 and 2017. TiVo, DISH Network and EchoStar agreed to dismiss all pending litigation between the companies with prejudice and to dissolve all injunctions against DISH Network and EchoStar.

The parties also granted certain patent licenses to each other. TiVo granted DISH Network a license under its Time Warp patent (US Pat. No. 6,233,389) and certain related patents, for the remaining life of those patents. TiVo also granted EchoStar a license under the same '389 patent and certain related patents, for the remaining life of those patents, to design and make certain DVR-enabled products solely for DISH Network and two international customers. EchoStar granted TiVo a license under certain DVR-related patents for TiVo-branded, co-branded and ingredient-branded products.

In addition, TiVo said that it would play a role in helping DISH Network promote the Blockbuster digital video service.
