TiVo said Dish Network has completed its migration to TiVo’s metadata platform, which it’s using for program information and image-based content across platforms, including linear TV, VOD and DVR services.
TiVo said it completed the migration process in just under five months.
The migration also comes almost a year after Rovi, just prior to its merger with TiVo, announced a new ten-year patent license renewal with Dish.

“Working against a compressed timeline, TiVo delivered a comprehensive metadata solution that enabled DISH to continue to deliver rich entertainment experiences that its customers expect,” added Roz Ho, TiVo’s senior vice president and general manager, consumer and metadata.
