blinkx launches TV API

February 2, 2011

blinkx, the world’s largest video search engine, has confirmed the launch of a TV API (Application Programming Interface). The API is designed to provide partners in the fast-growing Connected TV ecosystem – from box makers and TV manufacturers, to app developers and game consoles – access to blinkx’s index of over 35 million hours of online video.

The TV API draws from the wealth of video content across the entire web – but automatically filters results based on the capabilities of the user’s device – such as the video formats it supports – so that the user is always offered compatible clips.
