The Open Spreety API sticks a TV and a TV guide in your program. According to the API webpage, you can have users search for shows by title, genre, and by the decade the show was produced, among other criteria. Despite all the pay walls and cable costs, Open Spreety says there is so much free content out there from the mainstream media that viewers can get lost in the forest of choices.
A trend is starting to emerge: Advanced technologies are being made available first as cloud services that organizations can invoke easily via an API, rather than having to figure out how to deploy and master themselves. The latest example of that trend is a cloud service from AlchemyAPI that takes advantage of machine learning and computer vision technologies to allow publishers and providers of ad networks to more easily monetize content.
