TiVo (TIVO) yesterday confirmed that Amazon (AMZN) content is available to its pay-TV customers nationwide through the integration of the Amazon Prime Video app into the company's OneSearch technology, B. Riley FBR analyst Eric Wold tells investors in a research note. The analyst, who admits announcements like this may normally seem relatively immaterial, views the Amazon integration as "potentially important" to TiVo's growth and valuation outlooks. Further, Wold confirmed that TiVo was able to secure the enhanced Amazon content relationship without having to provide intellectual property license to Amazon. As such, the announcement is the first example that validates the value-creating opportunities the company's separation plans can provide, contends Wold. He believes the partnership highlights the benefits of the planned separation of TiVo's intellectual property and product segments and provides a "clearer path to value." The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on TiVo with a $19 price target. The stock in morning trading is up 4% to $8.06.
