GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS (September 17, 2013) AT&T and FYI Television (FYI) have entered into a long-term agreement that will bring AT&T Uverse increased programming access quality and deeper program information and imagery, dramatically enhancing informed viewing options to millions of customers across multiple text, mobile, tablet, web, personal computer, and gaming console platforms.

“As the entertainment information industry moves more and more into the digital future, FYI is excited to provide the industry’s most robust and accurate TV metadata and entertainment content. Our content and data services dramatically improve the user experience,” said Chris Stark, Sr., President and CEO of FYI Television.
Since March of 2006, FYI has provided linear schedule and program description data for AT&T’s onscreen EPG, listings, and various mobile applications.

That arrangement has now been extended in the long-term agreement to include richer and deeper program descriptions, extended cast and actor information, biographical/work history and individual program showcards with related cast and episodic images, and image hosting services.

Consumers can expect to experience more in-depth show information content, a broader and specific library of rich media images for entertainment, plus expanded celebrity and show facts & more.

“With 850+ categories/genres, an unyielding editorial standard, plus our vast image content and rich media database, FYI products and services are perfectly poised to satisfy the growing and divergent entertainment information demands of consumers in today’s market, and the service standard of excellence our partner AT&T is known for,” Stark continued.
The AT&T Uverse product is universally recognized for providing high quality content and television/internet services to millions of customers, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Their selection of FYI as their on-going entertainment metadata and content provider of choice was based upon FYI’s proven ability to deliver superlative data content, tracking and analytic information, as well as meeting critical metrics in  terms of delivery, quality assurance, and economies of scale.

The data and content enhancement from the FYI and AT&T partnership is scheduled to be available to millions of AT&T Uverse’s subscribers during the month of September 2013 across all AT&T Uverse onscreen, mobile, tablet and other connected devices.
The latest AT&T/FYI agreement was recently executed, and was based on FYI’s suitability for stewarding the entertainment data needs of AT&T—along with FYI’s track record working with the telecommunications giant in the past.
