By leveraging Digitalsmiths Seamless Discovery® to power search and recommendations for UVideos, Univision is ensuring that users can easily find the most relevant content available, whether it be telenovelas, sports, news or entertainment programming, anytime, on any connected device.

Univision’s decision to create UVideos was based on research on U.S. Spanish-speaking Hispanic consumers conducted by Nielsen, a global provider of information and insights into what consumers watch and buy. According to the research, the most important factors for consumers when considering any digital video service offered in the U.S. are: the ability to consume content on multiple devices, variety of content, cost, and the ability for everyone in the household to easily search for or find desired content. With UVideos, Univision is delivering the social, personalized, multi-screen experience that today’s consumers want, making it a model for other content owners and distributors.
