"We're proud to be working with Cogeco Cable to launch a brand new service to their subscribers that will provide them with even greater access to Cogeco Cable's industry leading digital entertainment products and services," said Bob Shallow, SVP of worldwide service provider, entertainment and retailer sales and marketing at Rovi. "We plan on continuing to bring new innovative product capabilities to market that make it easier for people to connect to, discover and enjoy entertainment."
Cogeco Remote Record and TotalGuide xD are powered by Rovi signature data, remote recording, search and recommendations technologies, offering a unique, interactive and engaging entertainment discovery experience to users. The apps are developed from Rovi's family of interactive guides that combines rich TV listings with enhanced data, images and multimedia to deliver an engaging "six degrees of discovery" entertainment experience. Rovi media guides enable consumers to quickly see what's on, find the programs and information they want, and uncover new, related shows and dynamic content. Cogeco and Rovi have been working together over the past several months to integrate and test both apps on the Cogeco platform.
