TV Guide Partners With Cable Companies
Gemstar-TV Guide International, an entertainment and technology company has announced that Mediacom Communications and Insight Communications, both cable operators in the U.S., will launch TV Guide’s Lsitings2Go online television guide on their portals in early August.
Customers of Mediacom and Insight will be able to personalize Listings2Go grid views and search their local TV listings online with 14 days of programming that includes genre, HDTV filters and detailed episode information. Listings2Go can be customized to provide users with programming information for every channel lineup in the U.S. or just a specific channel lineup.
"We are pleased to be working with Mediacom and Insight to help them bring customized local TV listings solutions for their online customers," said Tonia O’Connor, executive vice president, distribution, Gemstar-TV Guide.
"These Listing2Go launches are particularly important as they mark the initial phase of the roll-out of the My TV Guide cross-platform tools and services; including remote recording capabilities offered to TV Guide’s interactive program guide affiliates, as part of our upcoming i-Guide release."
