[X1-X2] Where does Comcast get its tv guide movie and tv info?

So I noticed on my X1, they're using rotten tomatoes for movie ratings and perhaps some movie descriptions, cast info, etc. But where are they getting all of their tv information from?

I'm leaning towards rovi?

Right, I have only TiVos so that's what I was thinking as TMS supplies their guide data.

To be fair Rovi's guide listings is what became of TV Guide (Gemstar) and their listings data.

Which is why you can still see the "TV Guide" logo on things like the i-Guide.
