DISH deploys TiVO metadata to enable seamless entertainment discovery

MUMBAI: After taking some good strides worldwide, TiVO Corporation is adding another feather to its cap. After partnering Panama Cable Onda, Turner, Japan's KDDI and renewing its licence with Foxtel, it's now working with DISH.

TiVo, a leader in entertainment technology and audience insights, announced that leading pay-TV provider, DISH Network Corp., 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.

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 minimize impact across DISH’s entertainment ecosystem.

“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 Niraj Desai, vice president of product management, DISH. “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.”
