Neptuny and TVBLOB have announced BLOBwise, a social TV recommendation system for over-the-top IPTV. Based on Neptuny’s ContentWise engine, BLOBwise, along with a Telsey BLOBbox, is designed to let users expand their range of content options, including EPG, podcasts, pay-per-view VOD, and other Internet TV channels and services, plus social interactivity on TV. The potential of the recommendation engine is being demonstrated at IPTV World Forum London (March 25-27) at the Neptuny booth.

TVBLOB integrated the ContentWise technology in the BLOBbox middleware, making it accessible to a range of TV-centric consumer electronics devices, with the goal of letting average TV viewers directly tap into content and services available on the Internet. Content recommendation applications that leverage Facebook and BLOBwise are planned to be publicly available this summer.
