Dish selects TiVo metadata

MUMBAI: TiVo Corporation, a global leader in entertainment technology and audience insights, today announced that leading pay TV provider Dish has completed its migration to TiVo Metadata.

Dish is utilising TiVo’s rich metadata, such as program information and image-based content, across its product platforms, including linear TV, video on demand (VOD) and DVR.

“Today’s consumers want a visually-rich entertainment experience that makes it easy for them to quickly identify and access the content they want in real-time,” said Dish vice president of product management Niraj Desai. “Through our long-standing collaboration with TiVo, we were able to integrate their enhanced metadata offerings and provide a cohesive and seamless entertainment experience across our product platforms.”

TiVo completed the metadata migration process in just under five months, bringing rich and robust metadata to Dish’s product platforms. The deployment was also rolled out in a way to minimise impact across Dish’s entertainment ecosystem.

“Working against a compressed timeline, TiVo delivered a comprehensive metadata solution that enabled Dish to continue to deliver rich entertainment experiences that its customers expect. We deeply value our relationship with DISH and look forward to continuing to innovate with them,” said Roz Ho, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer and Metadata, TiVo. “With our industry-leading metadata catalog and innovative discovery solutions, TiVo is helping companies like DISH power the ultimate entertainment experience.”
