Multi-platform media services provider Red Bee Media has inked a multi-year deal with leading Nordic pay-TV platform Canal Digital DTH to supply rich metadata services.

Covering Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, the deal will see Red Bee Media provide rich EPG content, including localised programme descriptions and images, to power content discovery for over 250 channels in five languages (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and English). The metadata will support linear and on-demand services available on Canal Digital DTH’s next-generation TV platform.

“Canal Digital DTH is a major operator in the Nordic region and we are proud to be selected as the exclusive provider of rich metadata for their next-generation TV platform," said Patrick Tillieux, chief executive officer, Red Bee Media.

“We offer the most comprehensive and high quality metadata coverage in Europe along with leading-edge functionality and years of experience and know-how. This new deal, combined with other recent new business wins, really solidifies our position as the leading provider of content discovery services not just in the Nordic region, but across Europe too.”
