Emeryville, Calif. –– Simple.TV said Thursday it has selected the Gracenote eyeQ system to power the electronic program guide for all digital basic cable and over-the-air programming for North American Simple.TV users.

The Gracenote eyeQ technology, which lets viewers see what live programming is playing now and view listings with related photos and video, will be available to Simple.TV premium subscribers.

 A software update featuring the Gracenote eyeQ TV listings data and other related metadata will be made available to Simple.TV customers in the U.S. this month.

 Simple.TV offers cord-cutting viewers an on-screen guide to help them find free, over-the-air programs to watch and record, like guides typically offered by cable, satellite and telco TV service providers.

A simple search using a Simple.TV smart phone or tablet app will retrieve related episodes including recorded shows, future airdates, program synopsis and cast and crew information and images.

Gracenote eyeQ is offered as a solution for interactive and electronic program guides featuring TV listings for more than 30 countries, up to 21 days of listings coverage and metadata for more than a million movies and TV programs.
