NEW YORK (AP) - Dish Network satellite TV customers can keep using their digital video recorders while a court battle continues with TiVo Inc.
That's the word today from both companies.
TiVo accuses Dish of infringing on its DVR patent. But a federal appeals court on Wednesday granted Dish Network and EchoStara stay on a contempt order that would have forced them to disable Dish DVRs.
A judge in the federal court in Marshall, Texas, last month found Dish and EchoStar to be in contempt of his permanent injunction on TiVo's DVR Time Warp technology. That technology lets viewers pause, rewind and fast-forward live shows.
