Red Bee Media for Canal Digital

June 26, 2013

Red Bee Media, the media services company, has signed a multi-year deal with Nordic pay-TV platform, Canal Digital DTH, to supply rich metadata services across Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

The deal, which was signed following a competitive tender process, will see Red Bee Media provide EPG content, including localised programme descriptions and images, to power content discovery for over 250 channels in five languages (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish and English). The metadata will support linear and on demand services available on Canal Digital DTH’s next-generation TV platform.

Patrick Tillieux, Chief Executive Officer, Red Bee Media, added: “Canal Digital DTH is a major operator in the Nordic region and we are proud to be selected as the exclusive provider of rich metadata for their next-generation TV platform. We offer the most comprehensive and high quality metadata coverage in Europe along with leading-edge functionality and years of experience and know-how. This new deal, combined with other recent new business wins, really solidifies our position as the leading provider of content discovery services not just in the Nordic region, but across Europe too.”
