TMS IDs have become the de-facto industry standard, allowing video companies to connect with each other and cross-link content.


 TMS IDs from Gracenote are the building blocks for TV discovery platforms and on-screen guides. TMS IDs are unique identifiers for TV programs and movies, linking them to schedule data and on-demand Video catalogs. This enables TV viewers to search for and find their favorite shows, set DVR season passes, and find related programs.

Multi-channel Networks

Short form videos are exploding in popularity. But they lack structured data and IDs to make them discoverable. TMS IDs are increasingly being adopted by multi-channel networks (MCNs) to improve how short-form videos are found on YouTube and other platforms.


TMS IDs from Gracenote are the unique identifiers for TV shows and movies that make it possible to link different OTT catalogs together, letting users enjoy powerful search capabilities across Hulu, Netflix, VUDU and other top services.

Linear TV

TMS IDs from Gracenote are mapped to every TV episode and are related to specific IDs for the correct TV series numbers, making it possible for viewers to browse episodes and series, as well as set DVR season pass recordings.
