Create engaging sports discovery experiences.

Sports content is extremely valuable to service providers and consumers alike, however, the sports discovery experience can be disappointing – not as rich and satisfying as movie and TV discovery experiences, and often hindered by data providers’ limited metadata and image assets. Rovi addresses those needs with Rovi Sports, as the only global provider to link sports content with TV, movies, music, games and books, powering the entire entertainment ecosystem.

Introducing Rovi Sports

Rovi Sports is an international sports metadata product that offers real-time updates – including rivalries and up-to-the-minute information – to drive fans to the most exciting sporting events content available. It covers more than 60,000 of the world’s most popular sporting events, including the Olympics.
