Live Guide To-Go is a channel management tool and application SDK for creating an Electronic Program Guide (EPG) in third-party applications. Publishers can build linear TV experiences that augment their current VOD offering using a simple SDK across web, mobile, smart devices and connected TV.

A turnkey channel management solution for digital linear feeds from Bitcentral’s FUEL platform or Free Ad-Support TV (FAST) channel vendors, Live Guide To-Go offers a software development kit (SDK) and CMS suite originally developed by Powr.tv, which recently was acquired by Bitcentral, it said.

Fusion modernizes the methodologies used to deliver the broadcast content services of Bitcentral’s on-premise Oasis solution, including archive, asset management and sharing. has been Built from the ground up in a microservices architecture to leverage the scaling and cost efficiencies of cloud-based resources, Fusion provides an availability capability not easily provided in a typical station environment, the company said.
