WOW! cable systems in Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Illinois and Michigan have rolled out Wurl's 1Guide service, an HTML5 programming guide.
The implementation is part of the WOW! Streamland service, available via the pay-TV provider's Ultra TV set-top boxes, which provide cable subscribers with an HTML5-based user interface.
Streamland offers applications like Netflix and Toon Goggles, along with thousands of channels of ad-supported streaming video programming.
"Streamland provides our customers with effortless access to the streaming video programming they love, without the hassle of multiple devices, changing inputs and juggling remote controls," said Steve Gorman, WOW! vice president of product management. "We've brought together on one device all of the video services our Ultra TV customers use -linear TV, whole-home DVR, VOD and streaming."
