EBS, the full-service provider of EPG data for platforms and channels worldwide, has further expanded its contract with dedicated motorsport channel Motors TV. EBS has worked with Motors TV for a number of years, supplying EPG data via its Pawa software solution and portfolio of EPG data services to the Sky and Virgin platforms. This latest expansion sees EBS further support Motors TV in its recent move to provide viewers with a free-to-air service on Arqiva’s DTT capacity, via Freeview channel 71.
“We’re really excited to deliver the widest range of live motorsport to terrestrial TV viewers in the UK. The EPG plays a huge role in capturing and retaining our audience and it’s really important that it’s accurate at all times. When viewers switch to the channel they need to know immediately what’s on. Working with EBS we’re able to provide a high-quality EPG service,” explains Frédéric Viger, Head of Programming & Acquisitions, Motors TV.
