The Super Bowl telecast will be followed by a special broadcast of one of TV's most popular shows, "This Is Us," which is expected to have added to demand.

    Tivo files additional patent infringement lawsuit against Comcast

    Tivo Corp. said on Thursday that Rovi, which Tivo owns, has filed new patent infringement lawsuits against Comcast Corp. . Rovi alleges Comcast's X1 set top box platform infringes on technology invented and patented by Rovi, including pausing and resuming TV shows on different devices, restarting live programming in progress, advanced DVR recording features and advanced search and voice functionality. "Hundreds of media and entertainment leaders around the world recognize the value of our innovations by selecting our products and services and licensing our intellectual property," Tivo Chief Executive Enrique Rodriguez said in a statement. "Our goal is for Comcast to renew its long-standing license." In November, the International Trade Commission ruled in favor of Tivo in a previous patent infringement lawsuit brought against Comcast. Tivo said as part of the most recent lawsuit that it plans to file additional legal action with the International Trade Commission on the same patents, seeking an exclusion order that would prevent infringing Comcast set-top boxes from being imported to the U.S. Comcast shares were inactive in premarket trade on Thursday. Shares of Tivo were up more than 2%, but have declined nearly 27% in the last 12 months.

    Democrat Schumer vows to push for Senate vote on net neutrality: report

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday he would use the Congressional Review Act as a vehicle to force a Senate vote on the Federal Communications Commission's repeal this week of Obama-era rules on net neutrality, according to a Reuters report. Those rules barred internet service providers from discriminating against content, content providers or consumers, provided the content in question is legal. The commission voted 3-2, along party lines, on Thursday to repeal those rules. Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who joined the commission during the Obama administration as a Republican member put forth by Sen. Mitch McConnell, reportedly said the rollback of the rules could benefit consumers as broadband providers such as AT&T and Comcast offer wider ranges of internet service options. Even if Schumer succeeds in getting senators on the record on net neutrality the move is not expected to have an impact on the rollback.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    NBC News, owned by Comcast Corp. , fired lead morning anchor Matt Lauer after complaints of "inappropriate sexual behavior," the network said on Wednesday. In a statement read aloud by "Today Show" host Savannah Guthrie Wednesday morning, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack said: "On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company's standards. As a result, we've decided to terminate his employment. While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he's been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident. Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected, and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences, no matter who the offender. We are deeply saddened by this turn of events, but we will face it together as a news organization -- and do it in as transparent a manner as we can."Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
