  Electronic program guide - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An Electronic Program(me) Guide (EPG) or also an Interactive Program(me) Guide (IPG) or Electronic Service Guide (ESG), is an on-screen guide to scheduled broadcast television programs, allowing a viewer to navigate, select, and discover content by time, title, channel, genre, etc, by use of their remote control, a keyboard or even a phone keypad.
When EPGs are connected to PVRs, or personal video recorders they enable a viewer to plan his or her viewing and record broadcast programs to a hard disk for later viewing.
EPGs are typically sent within the broadcast transport stream or alongside it in a special data channel.
