No IPTV network is complete without an interactive program guide. Your Electronic Program Guide (EPG) is automatically populated with channel and show information for all of your licensed content. Pull content data from all around the world and organize it for easy searching or browsing.

Through an XML “data scrape” the right information is sorted, arranged and displayed in an easy to use, interactive guide. Mouse over the content in the EPG to get even more program information. Save the free event to your ‘Favorites’ for easy access in the future, or for premium content purchase the ticket in advance.

Users can pinpoint their content through the search filters built into the EPG. Close them when you don’t need them, open them when you do. Users can filter by content type (free vs premium) or the categories of the content. They can also choose how the content displays by controlling the order the results display. And most commonly, use the text search to find related content.

Features

  • Pull channels from all over the world for distribution on your network
  • Scrape the data for all events so it is automatically included in your schedule lineup
  • Provide an interactive guide for your viewers to find and search your content
  • Simplify the process by which your users find their content

  3. I have a question about the format of EPG and channel list.
    Q1: I want to know how the EPG data transfer between STB/TV and server. What the protocol it used, HTTP + XML? HTTP + SOAP ? Or something else?

    Could you give me a sample code to describe them(the packet send and receive between STB and server)?

    Q2: I have search the doc about EPG/channel list format for several days, but have nothing can be used. I mean, I didn’t get the exact fotmat about the fotmat. Could you tell the format of channel list of you product? For example:

    -
    tv
    Channel 3 (228.110.1.3)
    SD
    udp://228.110.1.3:1234
    8cdfe078b67542382c871e1fd46b998e
    yes

    Q3 : I know some carriers make EPG page use HTML、CSS、JavaScript、DOM, and you ? Could you tell me your technology?

    Thank you.

    Answer:
    Channel manager TV guide set up details are listed here:

    Also as detailed in our manual page here:

    Note: The EPG (Electronic program guide) can be configured to scrape and display information from 3rd party XMLs, but this time is considered exploratory and must be approved.
