Rovi Corporation has inked an agreement with Charter Communications enabling Charter to distribute Rovi TotalGuide Solution on Charter’s set-top boxes, mobile and tablet devices and the Web. In addition, the multi-year agreement includes a licence to the Rovi Remote Record Scheduling Application for i-Guide and Passport Guide and for the use of the Rovi interactive programme guide patent portfolio across STBs, Web, and mobile products.

Beyond the set top, the Rovi TotalGuide xD application can extend and connect Charter’s video experience to tablets, smartphones and PCs.
