Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) today announced that Hollywood.com, a leading movies and entertainment website dedicated to super-serving fans, and Spill.com, the irreverent animated movie review site, will use Rovi entertainment data to facilitate the discovery, navigation and search capabilities on the two sites. Hollywood.com has signed an agreement with Rovi to incorporate Rovi movie and TV data on the two portals, providing an enhanced discovery experience for users looking to find information and rich media content about their favorite movies, TV shows, actors and celebrities.

By deploying the single-source entertainment library of both TV and movie data from Rovi as well as its extensive relational links, Hollywood.com and Spill.com can now enable users to move seamlessly between the two content types. Users of the sites will be able to navigate from a TV show to a lead actor’s biography to an award-winning movie that also featured that actor and on and on, providing the opportunity for them to dive even deeper into their favorite entertainment moments.

“As the industry continues to trend toward access to content anytime, anywhere, we believe that data is the linchpin in helping consumers discover and connect to the content that matters to them the most,” said Al Miyashita, Vice President, Worldwide Data Sales, Rovi Corporation. “Hollywood.com is dedicated to bringing its users rich and continuous discovery of their favorite TV shows, movies and celebrities, and we are excited to collaborate with Hollywood.com to help create an engaging experience for their fans.”

Now, our fans will be able to navigate fluidly between TV or movie data, whether it be reading in-depth information on profiles, casts, credits and reviews, or viewing celebrity images.”

Entertainment data from Rovi includes TV data on more than 1.3 million TV series episodes and data on over 430,000 movie titles.
