Apple licenses tech from TV guide maker Rovi

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2010

Apple never rests and as proof, an SEC filing today revealed that it has struck a “multi-year agreement” with Rovi in what may be a strategy to support the new Apple TV. The terms are secret, but will let Apple license Rovi’s technology over the course of the deal. Neither company has commented yet.

It’s hard to say what Apple would use the tech for. The company makes interactive program guide material that taps into TV channel lineups. It also makes software for set-top boxes to access and share media stored both on the Internet and the local network. So Apple TV is a good guess.

Nintendo launches TV Guide Channel in Japan
Japan gets all the cool stuff right? Well, they just got more. Users in Japan now have access to a new channel. Not all of the details are known yet, but from what we can gather, with the TV Guide Channel, users can surf through shows on the EPG, share their favorites, use demographic data to see how popular a program is and even receive an alert 30 minutes prior to a show’s start time.

The main thing is, the ability to use your Wiimote as a television remote via the sensor bar. It will control all the usual functions like volume, switching channels. Jealous? Of course you are. We will just have to wait and see if we ever get anything like it here.
