EBS, the leading full-service provider of EPG data, has announced a contract with media giant Viasat World, which sees EBS providing EPG services deployed across 47 territories, for 22 channels in 20 languages.

EBS’ scheduling system Pawa, which will be used in-house, will provide Viasat World’s ever-expanding portfolio of operators and partners with localised press listings, Highlights and EPGs as well as high-res images and quality metadata.

Vice President of Viasat World’s Products and Channels, Karin Heijink, comments, “This new system represents an important milestone in our new company’s mission to become a modern, innovative global broadcaster. We have exciting plans to expand our business and what really impressed us about the Pawa technology was that as we grow, this system grows with us.”
