Enhance TV Experience With Muvi’s EPG!

Ankit Jena Published on : 24 May 2024

 

Introducing Muvi’s EPG for TV app that will allow you to integrate Electronic Program Guide functionally with your live TV channels and thus allowing your viewers to browse through the list of contents and which content to be broadcasted at what time. Muvi One offers a comprehensive array of tools for efficiently managing Channels and their Electronic Program Guides (EPG), thereby boosting user experience across various platforms.

 

What is EPG in Streaming?

Electronic Programming Guide, popularly known as EPG is an electronically generated list of contents giving the broadcast schedule of the contents of a live TV channel or streaming service. We can also refer to it as a time table of the content that is going to air or has aired in the past. You have the complete choice of giving the schedule of your broadcasts for one day, week, or a month or even longer than that.

Modern broadcast systems come with automatically generated EPG, where it takes the data input when the broadcaster feeds the list of content into the system through a XML, HTML, or CSV file.

How Can You Use EPG in Your TV app?

You can use EPG to develop a schedule of content that your channel or app will stream allowing your viewers to get clear information when they will be able to watch their favorite shows.

Once you upload the content into your content management system and feed the system with a list of broadcasts through XML, HTML, or CSV files, it will automatically generate an EPG and the audience will be able to access it on their device.

EPGs can be updated in real-time to reflect any changes to the broadcasting schedule. This ensures that viewers have access to the most accurate and up-to-date information about what is currently airing and what’s coming up next.

 

Programming Schedule

The primary use of EPG is to allow your audience to get the schedule of the contents in advance, providing them a convenient method to enjoy their favorite shows. You can include program titles, descriptions, start time, and end-time in the EPG.

 

Program Metadata

You can also use EPG to provide additional information about each program such as genre, ratings, cast information and more.

 

Personalization

You can also personalize EPG such as providing recommendations to your audience based on viewing history or preferences.
