With the expansion of TV channels in the digital era, viewers are exposed to an excessive amount of programs to choose from. Consequently, personalized recommendation systems are desirable in order to enable viewers to navigate and find interesting programs. This paper describes an application that provides program recommendations for viewers in real-time. The application, called suggesTv, shows the top rated content and the programs that are being broadcast at the moment, based on information stored in his ContentWise profile.
