October 20, 2021 – BRAINE L’ALLEUD, BELGIUM
Alpha Networks, a leading provider in software solutions for the video distribution market, and MediaData TV, the Spanish leader in TV Metadata and services associated with television entertainment, announce today that Vodafone España has implemented their Real-time Accurate EPG solution, to improve the catch-up and start-over features on a list of selected TV channels.
Vodafone España is part of the Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest telecommunications companies. This new implementation will improve the experience for the over 1.5 million subscribers of Vodafone España TV service, by allowing them not only to catch up on shows they have missed but also those already in progress.
REAL-TIME ACCURATE EPG FOR IMPROVED START-UP AND CATCH-UP FEATURES
To solve the issue of EPG’s inaccuracy, Alpha Networks and Mediadata TV have joined forces to propose an innovative AI-powered solution to perform the best results in TV streams detection and real-time adjustments. Both companies are engaged in a common effort to deliver a service that guarantees sharp start over for TV channels, as well as the removal of unplayed, padding programming and the introduction of initially unscheduled information broadcasted by the channel, giving a perfect picture of the real EPG.
The new service for real-time Accurate EPG offers a smarter program guide and allows Vodafone España to upgrade user interaction and experience.
