X1 - Actor Bio Info

Anyone know what is the "source", I.e. where does the data come from to populate the Cast and Crews bio information? I'd like to know where I can add/update the bios of the actors. I've noticed sometimes it's out of date or incomplete.

Re: X1 - Actor Bio Info



I am not 100% sure about this but I am 98% sure that Comcast uses a 3rd party company named Rovi for X1 the guide information.

I am not aware of a way to contact Rovi to suggest updates.

Re: X1 - Actor Bio Info

i believe xfinity uses a company called Rovi...i agree that who ever supplies this info should spent much more effort than what the do now.i have seen incorrect ifo..ive seen female photos for well known male actors.of course the races have been confused more than once.i guess my fave is when a very well known actor is checked out and"No Bio Available"

come on man ..pick up a book...not a big deal but somebody is getting money for work done poorly...endure

Re: X1 - Actor Bio Info

I’d like to know the source, too. I have found several errors in actors’ biographies and filmographies.
