Canal Digital partners with Red Bee on metadata

Nordic pay-TV platform Canal Digital DTH has signed a mutli-year deal with Red Bee Media, which will supply metadata services across Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

The agreement will see Red Bee provide rich EPG content, including localised programme descriptions and images, powering content discovery for over 250 channels in five languages – Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and English.

The metadata will support linear and on-demand services on Canal Digital DTH’s next-generation TV platform.

Rich metadata is a core part of Red Bee Media’s content discovery offering, which spans metadata sourcing, creation and EPG distribution, user interface design, personalised search and recommendation tools and second screen apps.
