SIDELOADING & STREAMING
More and more viewers are choosing to watch programmes at a time and via a medium to suit them, regardless of the linear schedule
This means that broadcasters now need to be able to flag content as available for sideloading and streaming – something that Global EPGs can do as part of its all-encompassing service for TV channels
We help our clients to navigate through this metadata minefield and then deliver nothing but accurate information to the TV platforms on their behalf
TV platforms around the world now require programme images to be provided alongside conventional metadata, for their enhanced EPGs and websites
At Global EPGs our systems can store multiple images against every TV series and episode record, in any format
This enables us to export your approved programme images alongside the EPG data to every TV platform, in exactly the right dimensions for each one
Viewers need to know that if they use the series linking function to record their favourite shows, then they’re not going to be left with missing (or, just as bad, duplicate) episodes on their set-top box
Global EPGs has been series linking TV programming since the facility was first introduced and we’ve developed the most sophisticated system in the industry to deal with this
We know – and abide by – all the rules of series linking and ensure that the viewers’ needs are always met
In many territories, TV channels are now required by law to flag their subtitled programming
In some cases this requirement extends further, to include on-screen signing and audio description access services too
Global Listings already has the technology to communicate these flags to the TV platforms, thus meeting our broadcast clients’ obligations in each different territory
What the industry says about US
Global Listings is one of the few companies we work with that actually has made the highlights easy for the user. It is great that the highlights come in time, have short descriptions of the highlighted content and always have the airing dates and times included. I rate you excellent.
ESPN Classic, Europe
Serving sports fans whenever and wherever sports are watched is a key mission for ESPN Classic and localising our listings is a significant contribution to facilitating this. Global Listings has proved to be a quality resource in making this happen.
