Rovi has renewed its patent licence and interactive programme guide (IPG) product agreement with Charter Communications.

Charter will also be able to license Rovi's products and services, including Rovi Search, Recommendations and Conversation Services, Rovi Metadata and Rovi Analytics.

"As the media and entertainment marketplace becomes increasingly fragmented, Rovi is helping customers like Charter raise the bar by delivering innovative discovery experiences that increase entertainment content consumption," said Tom Carson, CEO at Rovi. "Our licence renewal with Charter reinforces the value of Rovi's patent and product portfolio in Pay-TV homes across the nation. Rovi is pleased to have reached this significant licence agreement with Charter and we look forward to continuing to work together as our respective businesses evolve."
