Rovi Recommendations

Help your customers discover new digital media favorites. Rovi Recommendations is a recommendations engine that's designed around the ways users relate to media. We employ top-tier media analysts who rate, review, and profile content across our vast collection of metadata about music, movies, and television. We combine that knowledge with the power of multiple computer algorithms and customization options to deliver always current, always relevant recommendations.

Use Rovi Recommendations as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with other services in Rovi Cloud Services.

Recommendations API Version 2.1
