, LLC, a pioneer in personal video recording and home media center solutions, has extended its data licensing agreement with Tribune Media Services (TMS) for the United States and will now offer full service guide data for Canada -- the first of its kind.
The new agreement provides SageTV with comprehensive U.S. and Canadian television listings information including analog, digital and over-the-air TV schedules as well as system-specific channel lineups. Localized data from TMS is used with the SageTV Media Center, the first PVR/media center solution designed for both PCs and TVs, run on Windows or Linux, and supports HDTV, multiple tuners, networking and intelligent recording.
"Through our extended partnership with Tribune Media Services we are now able to offer all our Canadian and U.S. customers with premium programming guide data to view and record their favorite shows with no subscription fees. This expanded data combined with our SageTV Media Center software is a combination that provides a previously unavailable experience in the Media Center space."
"We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with SageTV and are delighted to support them with the most extensive and accurate television information as they continue to innovate and expand their service," said Kathy Tolstrup, General Manager of Sales and Marketing for TMS TV and Movie Information Products.
SageTV puts users in control of the first networked media center experience for the PC and makes it easy to get the most out of your cable or satellite TV service. SageTV has all the powerful features you expect from a Personal Video Recorder and adds quick and easy access to your existing collection of Videos, Music and Photos. By adding the SageTV Client, users can access their media anywhere throughout the home.
