TV Genius launches Facebook-integrated EPG


Recommendation engine specialist TV Genius has launched a TV guide that integrates with social network site Facebook.


The new solution uses TV Genius’ Content Discovery Platform to personalise TV guides. When a user logs into the EPG with Facebook Connect, all the shows their friends like are highlighted in the grid. The cloud-based solution means the Facebook-integrated EPGs can de deployed on the web, connected TVs, smartphones and tablets.


“In a world where operators are battling to be the key entertainment hub, a Facebook-integrated TV guide will increase stickiness, encouraging users to interact with the TV guide and their friends,” said Tom Weiss, CEO of TV Genius. “Powerful social recommendations will help viewers stumble across the content they want, while helping providers offer relevant, timely content.”
