SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Driving digital entertainment innovation, Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI) today announced that Cogeco Cable Canada Inc., a leading cable telecommunications provider in Canada, has signed on to use Rovi Video – one of the most comprehensive collections of metadata on TV, movies and celebrities – to enhance its subscriber services across platforms on set-top boxes (STBs), mobile devices and on the web.

Expanding on its previous relationship with Rovi, Cogeco will use Rovi Video, including thousands of hi-res images, multi-language support in English and French, and profiles on the most popular Canadian and international celebrities, in its cable TV products.
