Personal Entertainment Manager Strengthened Through Tie-In With US Electronic Programme Guide
Home Media Networks Ltd, developer of network capable home entertainment software, today announced a tie-in with Decisionmark Corp.’s online Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), TitanTV.com, to enable ShowShifter’s growing base of US customers to have more control over their viewing experience through automated scheduling and recording of specific TV programming as much as two weeks in advance of airing. Home Media Networks’ home entertainment software ShowShifter allows the user to watch, record and time-shift (pause) TV, play DVDs, listen to CDs and MP3 music files all through one interface.
This partnership means that users of TitanTV® can access specific information on their region’s TV stations, choose which ones they want to watch or record and then automatically instruct ShowShifter what to do. Two weeks worth of programming information is accessible from the website and is constantly updated allowing ShowShifter users to record their favourite TV programmes while on vacation.
TitanTV, is the first online television-listing source to provide this convenient functionality; essentially tuning a person’s PC to the channels they can receive at their home address and then allowing them to watch or record. “By partnering our TitanTV technology with major Personal Video Recorder (PVR) manufacturers, we’ve revolutionised the entire TV entertainment experience in the U.S.,” stated Jack Perry, President and CEO of Decisionmark. “ShowShifter was an obvious choice. It has a very easy-to-use interface which compliments the point-click-watch or record simplicity of TitanTV,” he added.
“It is an important step for Home Media Networks to partner with the US’s premiere Electronic Programme Guide to enrich the ShowShifter experience for consumers,” commented Home Media Network’s CEO, John Croft. “The US market is a step ahead of Europe, with consumers demanding increased functionality to meet their home networking and entertainment demands.”
