Nordija clients can now enjoy compelling, relevant, personal content recommendations in exciting new ways. Launched this week, the Nordija “Recommended For You” feature delivers personalized recommendations based on individual viewing behavior within the entire spectrum of devices supported by Nordija fokusOn. In addition, Nordija’s “Similar Shows” feature allows users to discover related content that is most similar to the show currently being watched, what has been watched, or what will be available in the future.
“Our clients tell us that content discovery is key for second screen applications,” said Thomas Christensen , Nordija Founder and CEO. “People love the Nordija fokusOn user experience, but scrolling through a list of 150 channels is not the future. What you want is a small set of program recommendations, just for you, that you can watch right now. Our new personalized recommendation system offers that, based on your viewing history, likes and more. We look to evolve Nordija fokusOn platform further over the coming months to be your perfect personalized program discovery system.”
