Tivù and Yotta Media Labs investing in HbbTV Operator Applications development

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands — Tivù has partnered with Yotta Media Labs to develop an HbbTV Operator Application that supports all of the features expected of a vertical network operator’s application for the Italian Free-To-Air satellite and terrestrial market.

This Operator Application dramatically enhances the usability of interactive services and the viewer experience steps up to the next level; narrowing the gap with pay TV’s operators.

“We have been working, since Tivù’s foundation, with the main TV and STB manufacturers operating in the Italian market for our multiplatform services, like: tivùsat (DTH), tivùon (OTT) and DGTVi certifications” said Alberto Sigismondi, Chief Executive Officer of Tivù. “Now we believe that thanks to the OpApp we have a unique opportunity to get to the highest level of customer satisfaction and user experience, that’s why we aim to integrate OpApp’s into the next generation of devices from 2018 onwards”.

Tivù, in collaboration with the Free TV Alliance, have participated in the inception and development of the HbbTV draft Operator Application specification.

Tivù, Yotta Media Labs, and the Free TV Alliance are fully committed to the future of operator applications and to the creation of a common standard for Free-To-View satellite TV services and technologies across Europe for the benefit of viewers, manufacturers and broadcasters.
