Turner has selected TiVo as its EMEA metadata distribution partner and will utilise services from the latter’s new Studio, Broadcast and Network Metadata Packages to manage its electronic programme guide (EPG) metadata distribution and service, which covers 44  channels in the region.

Turner’s 200-plus customers of its channel schedules and programming information will receive the data services, facilitating a revamped content discovery experience for viewers.

“Today’s consumers demand a fully connected entertainment experience to be able to discover and access content they want quickly and easily,” said James Crossland, regional vice president of technology and operations for EMEA and APAC at Turner. “When we were selecting a partner to enable our metadata distribution, TiVo’s global reach and long-standing experience working with the industry ecosystem made them the natural choice to power our services across Europe. We want to give our viewers a superior EPG experience when browsing our channels – we see it as an integral part of our programme offering to them.”

“TiVo is providing metadata distribution services that distribute multiple formats where needed,” said Roz Ho, senior vice president and general manager of metadata at TiVo. “Joining forces with Turner is a testament to TiVo’s technological capabilities in delivering solutions to help make TV and video viewing more enjoyable for their customers.”
