Introducing Rovi Cloud Services 2.0

We are excited to announce the launch of Rovi Cloud Services (RCS) 2.0 as the next generation of powerful media APIs that enable developers to create the next generation of entertainment discovery applications that engage and empower consumers.

RCS 2.0 replaces and extends RCS 1.0 APIs that currently power a variety of popular entertainment applications and services. New RCS 2.0 capabilities will enable you to create even more unique discovery experiences using nearly 100 entertainment APIs, with even more coming soon.


Rovi Cloud Services 2.0 offers the next generation portfolio of media entertainment APIs built on industry standard technology that makes it easier to consume and build compelling applications on any platform and for any form factor.
The new release includes Metadata, Search, Recommendations and Remote Access services.
The defining tenets of RCS 2.0 are increased developer productivity, faster time to market for customers across platforms and form factors, elastic compute capability, a state-of-the-art monitoring framework and utilization of a standards-based technology stack.
Upcoming releases will provide additional categories of customer-facing APIs, and will include more advanced and personalized recommendations, deeper and broader metadata, enhanced natural language interfaces, social and contextual services, and more.


Real-time metadata updates to enhance consumer engagement.
Rapid development and deployment of innovative multi-screen services and applications across platforms.
Simple and fast registration process on the developer portal allows for immediate API use.
Reduced learning curve with uniform API interfaces and semantics across the portfolio

And soon, there will be more to come. In the meantime, please feel free to provide comments and suggestions.
