The Related Content Database

The Related Content Database™ was originally established in 2006 to provide content owners with a database in the cloud that enables them to add related content experiences to their Blu-ray™ discs. Our proven software solutions and data services have been deployed by major film studios and consumer brands including The Walt Disney Company, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Warner Bros, Netflix, Fandango and Totalmovie. The Related Content Database contains second-by-second time-based metadata for over 3000 feature films and television programs. Today, the tools we’ve used internally to create this catalog of licensable time-based metadata have evolved into the Watchwith Platform. The Related Content Database remains a core component of the platform.
