Simply.TV is the perfect mixture of technology and editorial workflows

Simply.TV provides TV metadata for thousands of linear and non-linear sources. Built on the newest technologies combined with efficient editorial workflows, our metadata will take your applications to the next level.

After having sold our former business to Gracenote in 2013, we now redefine how metadata should be built and commercially sold.

If you want:

  • Flexibility and ability to get changes quickly done
  • No month-long implantation and migration projects
  • Insights into the data and the processes
  • Reasonable pricing and contracts allowing you to scale
  • Then you should reach out to us!

    EPG Data

    Metadata and EPG covering full lineups for most of Europe, with up to 10 weeks of data and live updates. New channels and data sources are added within few days and with back-to-back agreements in place with all content originators.

    Quality

    We give you the choice to decide on the data quality - 4 different data levels are offered: Raw source data, normalized, enhanced and editorialized data. The important thing is that you and your content provider agreements can dictate what is required. No one-size fits all.

    ID Space

    All data is delivered with unique IDs, enabling 360-degree search, and ensuring consistent recording. Original broadcaster IDs are stored with links to third party providers such as IMDb, EIDR, TheMovieDB, Rotten Tomatoes, Wikipedia and many others.

    Simply.TV KPI Dashboard

    Live KPI Dashboards

    We have developed several control instances to ensure that your data is in good hands.

    Our editorial teams monitor the data from real-time KPI dashboards. The same can you. The dashboards show EPG completeness and enable our editorial teams to spot aspects requiring further reviews based on thresholds. Any change made to our data is immediately reflected in the dashboard view.

    Simply.TV KPI Showcard

    Showcard Visualization of Your Data

    Our system enables our editors to look at the data in showcard view, which bridges the quantitative KPIs with a qualitative editorial approach. We believe that a gamification of our systems brings joy and fun to our staff which will then be reflected in outstanding data products for you.
