Gracenote and Loewe Pair Mobile Apps with Smart TV
Gracenote and Loewe are creating a deeper, more personal connection to the Smart TV experience, letting viewers interact with the Gracenote eyeQ powered channel guide from a mobile device.

Gracenote and Philips Make the TV Experience Smarter
By adding Gracenote eyeQ into its Smart TV platform, Philips is providing a “home screen” where viewers can easily find and access content from both broadcast and on-demand/streaming sources. They can also discover new TV programs and movies to watch through smart recommendations specific to their viewing habits and likes.
