Verizon Communications has announced that it will use TMS solutions to power all of its FiOS TV entertainment guides, from set-top boxes (STBs), to PCs, tablets and other mobile devices.
The installation covers all FiOS TV entertainment fronts from live TV guide data to video-on-demand to Flex View services. Flex View allows Verizon customers to buy or rent popular TV shows and movies on their set-top boxes and across a variety of Internet-connected devices.
"Verizon is a proven innovator and we're pleased to be working with them as they make entertainment content available to their subscribers on any platform at any time," said John Kelleher, president and COO of TMS. "We're confident that use of TMS' world-class information in FiOS TV guide products will enable advanced entertainment discovery and increased engagement among Verizon subscribers, ultimately leading to increased consumption of their services."
TMS data powers television and movie guide products in 40 countries for a range of clients, including Microsoft, Google, TiVo, Comcast, IMDb, Virgin Media UK, Com Hem, DIRECTV Latin America, SKY Brasil and Cablevision Mexico.
