News and Press Releases


March 25, 2014 — Grande Communications, the Texas-based broadband communications company offering Internet, TV and phone services, announced today that it is now providing Grande TiVo customers with unlimited access to popular interactive TV apps that are accessible from the comfort of their couch via Grande’s new Opera TV Store on TiVo. At no additional cost, customers can now enjoy and explore social media, news, games, weather, entertainment and other apps on their existing televisions. Grande’s Opera TV Store on TiVo is a “storefront” offering a collection of web apps that are optimized for television screens and displayed in a layout designed for widescreen TVs. With these new apps, Grande TiVo customers can connect to popular social media sites like Facebook, Opera for Twitter, Opera for Instagram and more by pushing the “TiVo” button on their Grande remote controls and selecting “Apps & Games” and the “Opera TV Store” option from the TiVo Central menu. Grande’s Opera TV Store on TiVo allows customers to synchronize their social network account information so they can post, share and interact from their televisions. Users simply need to enter their existing account information on their Grande TiVo and connect with friends and family just as they would on their laptop or mobile devices. From checking the weather to playing games and creating a personalized list of their favorite apps, customers now have easy access on every TV in their home. “Grande is committed to superior customer service by providing the finest products in our markets. The addition of Opera TV Store on TiVo will expand the ways our customers can consume the content they want, when they want, on one of the most important screens in their home,” said Matt Murphy, Grande president. “We are passionate about improving the customer experience and providing the best value, choice and flexibility. This new TiVo feature showcases another way we are here for our Texas customers.” Grande homes with an installed TiVo box have already received the update and can now access this great new feature. Customers who do not have a TiVo box can change the way they experience TV by contacting Grande today. Information about Grande services is available via or by calling 866-2GRANDE.
