PA partners with Vizimo for online video
The Press Association TV listings is partnering with Vizimo’s online listings service, in a bid to inject more video and discoverability in to newspaper publisher’s websites. The services will pipe PA’s TV listings through Vizimo’s technology and link to corresponding catch-up pages on broadcasters’ sites.
Vizimo acquired startup social TV community Tioti (TapeItOffTheInternet) 12 months ago and had $1.3 million in seed funds. It has an API which lets anyone generate recommendations for similar programmes, offer user profiles with personalised suggestions and deliver VOD that’s contextual to the video device being used.
