AT&T To Pay $215M To Settle TiVo Patent Suit

It looks like TiVo has won its patent dispute with AT&T. The settlement isn't as big as the $500M payday it got from Dish Network but $215 - $300M isn't chump change either.

AT&T Inc. will pay TiVo Inc. at least $215 million through June 2018, becoming the latest TV signal provider to settle a patent lawsuit involving the digital video recorder pioneer. AT&T could pay up to $300 million if subscriptions to its U-verse television package rise in line with AT&T forecasts, said TiVo spokesman Steve Wymer.
