Tribune Media Services and Fandango, a movie ticketing service, have entered into an agreement in an attempt to provide movie information and ticketing to InfoSpace Search & Directory, a Web search and online directory services provider.
Three of InfoSpace's popular metasearch and Internet yellow pages Web sites, Dogpile.com, Web Crawler.com, and Switchboard.com, are now live with TMS' local movie showtimes and theater information and Fandango movie ticketing.
Dogpile.com and Web crawler.com utilize InfoSpace's IntelliFind system to assess the likely intent behind every entered keyword designed to enable these sites to return TMS and Fandango content at the top of the results page when it is likely to be relevant to the end user. Switchboard.com now displays up-to-date movie listings and show times within the directory listings of movie theaters nationwide.
In both cases, the new content intends to help visitors to InfoSpace sites to select a film, plan where and when to see it, and buy tickets in advance from Fandango.
