FYI Television & Silicondust sign TV metadata agreement

FYI Television, a television listings metadata and rich media content provider, and Silicondust USA, a San Francisco Bay Area-based technology company, have entered into an exclusive long-term agreement.

The long-term agreement between the companies will fuel Silicondust’s many connected devices and applications across existing and future tuner devices in the U.S. and North America, with opportunity for expansion worldwide.

“We are thrilled to provide Silicondust with first class television content. Together, we will connect consumers with the most relevant, well-rounded television information and rich media, allowing them to make more informed viewing choices,” says Chris Stark, Sr., President and CEO of FYI.

Consumers can now expect to experience more in-depth show information and will be able to make image-based viewing decisions from a comprehensive library of showcards, network logos and celebrity photos.

Among the Silicondust applications and connected devices to receive the new entertainment data and image content is HDHomeRun VIEW for Android; additionally, FYI data will appear on future tablet and phone apps working in conjunction with the latest HDHomeRun brand devices, including currently available products HDHR3-CC (Prime), HDHR4-2US (Dual) and HDTC2-2US (PLUS).

QuickTV, Silicondust’s live TV viewing application for PCs, will also be receiving improvements such as showcards and guide data. QuickTV will be available for Windows, Linux and Mac later this summer.
