Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD OF PROVIDING TELEVISION PROGRAM RECOMMENDATIONS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ UTILISÉS POUR FOURNIR DES RECOMMANDATIONS DE PROGRAMME DE TÉLÉVISION
Abstract
(EN)
A system and method of providing television programming recommendations is disclosed. In a particular embodiment, the method includes receiving a user review of a television program from a set-top box device via an access network of an Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) system. The method also includes associating the user review with a user of the set-top box device. The method also includes receiving a request for programming recommendations from the set-top box device and generating a recommendation list that includes at least one recommended program.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé utilisés pour fournir des recommandations de programme de télévision. Dans un mode de réalisation particulier, le procédé consiste à recevoir d'un décodeur un rapport d'utilisateur concernant un programme de télévision, via un réseau d'accès d'un système de télévision par Internet (IPTV), à associer le rapport d'utilisateur à un utilisateur du décodeur, à recevoir du décodeur une requête pour des recommandations de programme, puis à produire une liste de recommandations qui comprend au moins un programme recommandé.
