Bringing consumers closer to the entertainment they love.
The traditional grid-based TV guide is continually evolving to meet consumer expectations. Today it is no longer sufficient to simply offer scheduling information; guides must be a wellspring of “six degrees” content integrating program information, personalized recommendations, related Internet resources and social media for various devices.
Rovi changed television viewing in 1981 with the introduction of the on-screen program guide. Since then, we have continued to deliver innovative, award-winning guides that help consumers navigate broadcast, time-shifted, OTT and VOD content on multiple devices and platforms. Our guidance technologies reach millions of service provider households and devices through our relationships with market-leading cable, satellite and broadband providers, networks, consumer electronics brands, and media and Internet-related companies worldwide.
Rovi’s classic guides include legacy entertainment search and discovery solutions for consumers on digital and analog devices. Powered by Rovi’s entertainment metadata, these robust interactive program guides feature expanded functionality to satisfy consumer demand and drive revenue.
Our connected guides are next-generation, cloud-based components of Rovi Connected Guide Solution, a global, multi-screen entertainment offering for service providers and application developers. These lightweight guides provide customizable listings for TVs, set-top boxes, game consoles, mobile devices and websites, so consumers can find and discover content when and where they want.
Rovi Remote Access Services lets service providers and authorized third-party developers interact directly with legacy set-top boxes from smart TVs, tablets and smartphones. Delivered as open APIs, these cloud-based services are designed to provide a more cost-effective path for transitioning to an agile, interactive IP-enabled infrastructure.
