SANTA CLARA, Calif. and CHICAGO -- This week at The Cable Show, Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) and Suddenlink, the seventh largest cable operator in the United States, have announced that the two companies have agreed to collaborate to bring Rovi TotalGuide Applications -- including TotalGuide for set top boxes (STBs) and TotalGuide xD -- to market. The agreement between Rovi and Suddenlink includes a multi-year license for the distribution of i-Guide interactive program guide, on top of which the Rovi TotalGuide Applications would be integrated and tested.

Rovi recently announced that its new TotalGuide for STB Application will work alongside i-Guide to bring advanced search, content discovery and recommendation capabilities to legacy set top boxes. This solution creates an easy adoption path for consumers, and enables service providers, such as Suddenlink to quickly deploy an advanced solution on top of their current offerings to deliver an immersive, rich user experience that broadens subscribers’ ability to find content across multiple environments.

“We look forward to continuing our relationship with Rovi and working together to bring Rovi’s next generation TotalGuide Applications to market,” said Tom McMillin, EVP and chief operating officer for Suddenlink.

“We’re pleased to be working with Suddenlink – to help them launch new capabilities that we believe will increase subscriber satisfaction with their services,” said Thomas Carson, EVP, Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Rovi. “Rovi guide solutions have been designed to highlight the best that service providers have to offer their subscribers without causing disruption in the way they are accustomed to accessing services.”
