Digital entertainment specialist Rovi has announced that Tango SA, part of the network operator Belgacom, has expanded its IPTV service in Belgium and Luxembourg with TV listings and VOD data.

Rovi Video has been selected to bring information and rich media on TV shows and video-on-demand movies to subscribers.

The service will allow Tango to provide customers with improved means for requests, navigation, and search functions for VOD movies and television programmes. Drawing on Rovi's database of 4.4 million TV programmes and 560,000 movie and video titles, the enriched data service includes TV programming and VOD movies including over 100 channels.

The service intends to provide customers with high quality programme synopses and rich graphics for better user experience. Rovi's data library includes information on music, movies, games, books, television, sports, awards as well as art, reviews, and celebrity biographies.

The agreement between Rovi and Tango is an extension of a previous agreement with Belgacom for entertainment metadata for its Belgacom TV service on pay-TV, Web and mobile platforms.
