Just what you’ve been hoping for — a programming guide for your phone.
The SmartVideo Entertainment Program Guide launches today from Action Engine Corp. According to the company, it “lets consumers quickly search for television programming from the company’s large library of live mobile television and video-on-demand, including ABC News, CNBC, DIC, Fox Sports, ifilm, NBC Mobile, The Weather Channel, and more.”
Says compay EVP Jim Souders, “Action Engine is focused on making sure that consumers don’t get frustrated trying to find and access that media. Our mobile search technology lets consumers discover services, like television programs, music videos, and news images, with dramatically fewer keystrokes and trips to the network than competitive offerings.”
So far, the platform is only available for Windows Mobile devices, but compatibility with more devices is promised for later this year.
