Vodafone Portugal has deployed Media Distillery’s EPG Correction Distillery technology to ensure EPG start-times for its IPTV/OTT service. The solution automatically carries out real-time analysis of broadcasts across multiple channels and adjusts the EPG to reflect the actual start-times of programmes.

Media Distillery argues that a common problem for TV platforms broadcasting linear content is that the actual start-times of programmes often do not align with the start-times listed in the EPG. This causes viewers to miss out on the beginning of shows, or forces them to sit through the end of shows prior to the ones they intend to watch. By providing real-time EPG correction, Media Distillery believes it enable viewing experiences which are “more harmonious, leading to enhanced satisfaction.”

Roland Sars, CEO of Media Distillery, said: “We’re delighted that Vodafone Portugal has chosen EPG Correction Distillery to deliver enhanced viewing experiences to its customers.”

Earlier this year, Sunrise – a Swiss telco and subsidiary of Liberty Global – has deployed Media Distillery’s EPG Correction Distillery technology for its Pay TV service in Switzerland. The technology will ensure subscribers with Sunrise’s latest generation set-top-box see accurate EPG start- and end- time information on the service’s 40 most watched channels.

Media Distillery says over 30 million homes worldwide “enjoy superior TV viewing experiences” as a result of its technology.
