“Relevance and accuracy of search functionality are central to the success of any recommendation engine. Our search algorithm is the only one to have been designed from the ground up to work with TV related content. Having been optimised over the last three years, the algorithm produces a level of quality and relevance that is unmatched across the industry,” said Tom Weiss, CEO, TV Genius. “We believe this partnership with NDS will help extend our reach to key players in the pay-TV industry to the benefit of subscribers and operators.”
