Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery® services available to
zeebox’s United States users are now launched in the United Kingdom and
DURHAM, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
the leader in video search and recommendations for TV Everywhere
platforms that enable the world’s largest video providers to increase
viewer engagement, today announced that zeebox, the innovative,
personalized TV companion application, is now leveraging Digitalsmiths
Seamless Discovery® in the United Kingdom and Australia.
Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery is powering key elements of
personalized video discovery across all of zeebox’s supported platforms.
In June 2013, zeebox deployed Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery to its
users in the United States. Building on this success, the company is now
enabling zeebox users in the United Kingdom and Australia to experience
the "Recommended For You" feature that delivers personalized
recommendations based on individual viewing behavior. In addition,
zeebox users will have access to the "Similar Shows" feature allowing
them to discover related content that is most similar
to the show currently being watched, previously viewed content or a
program available in the future.
“Scrolling through 150+ TV channels is not the way of the future.
Instead, you will use a personalized guide dynamically built for you,
featuring shows you already love that are on your TV now and later,
shows recommended by friends, shows you can participate in, interact or
play along with on your phone or tablet, and shows recommended for you
based on your viewing history,” said Anthony Rose, CTO and co-founder at
zeebox. "Our mission at zeebox is to deliver that experience and more.
Personalized recommendations play a big part in turning the process of
deciding what to watch from a chore into a delight.”
“Digitalsmiths is proud of our seamless integration with zeebox in the
United States and the tremendous feedback we’ve received from the zeebox
community,” said John Zelenka, Executive Vice President of Business
Development at Digitalsmiths. “This is another meaningful milestone in
our continued international growth and it reflects our commitment to
serving leading global entertainment brands and consumers.”
Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery and Unified Data Service™ enable
personalized search and recommendations applications for all content
including live TV, sports, time-shifted TV, premium channels and VOD
across all connected devices. These solutions give video providers a
clear pathway to increasing engagement and reclaiming viewer
