Global Listings, the worldwide leader in providing a one-stop solution to broadcasters’ content requirements, today proudly announces that it has won the exclusive EPG contract to deliver metadata and images for 100 channels to the Cablenet network in Cyprus.

Global Listings’ service provision coincides with Cablenet’s pioneering new EPG, launching later in 2019, which will provide the platform’s viewers with a brand new EPG experience. Global Listings will be delivering rich and deep EPG metadata for all 100 international and local channels broadcasting on the platform in English and Greek, in addition to images for every programme, seamlessly integrated into Cablenet’s new system.

Thalia Droussioti, CEO of Global Listings, said: “I am delighted that we are working in partnership with one of the biggest and fastest-growing telecommunications networks in Cyprus. Cablenet has chosen Global Listings after extensive market research and we are delighted that they have identified us as the best partner – in terms of technology, service delivery and price – for their new EPG platform.”

Antonis Kyprianou, TV & Content Manager of Cablenet, said:

“We are proud to announce today, our partnership with Global Listings, the international expert in delivering EPG data. This partnership comes as a result of the upcoming upgrade of our existing broadcast programming services which we offer to the end-user.  This new generation TV platform will feature continuously updated information and quality EPG services, allowing the end-user an enhanced TV experience. At Cablenet, we are looking forward to the launch of this new EPG platform.”
