TiVo Corp. entered into multiyear license and metadata agreements with Minerva Networks Inc. and Mexican cable operator izzi Telecom.
Under the multiyear intellectual property license renewal and new global metadata deal with Minerva, TiVo will provide metadata to Minerva's cloud service delivery platform Minerva YourTV Now. Minerva will also leverage the deal to unify its metadata across the Minerva 10 platform, according to a Jan. 9 news release.
Meanwhile, izzi Telecom will leverage a multiyear license for interactive program guides and entertainment metadata to support its video service, expand the deployment of TiVo's Passport Guide to its operations in Mexico City and Monterrey and add TiVo video metadata for TV and video programs.
TiVo's metadata platform offers scale, dynamism and core data which can surface trending content to market the right content at the right time, improve search and recommendations and support voice-powered results, according to the release.
