Freesat is making its debut at TV Connect. The free-to-air operator is demonstrating Metaphor, its flexible smart TV guide solution for international operators.
Metaphor is based on Freesat’s years of experience of operating a successful hybrid TV service in the UK. The service is available to terrestrial, satellite and cable operators looking to integrate broadband on-demand services into their existing linear broadcast offering.
“Operators are constantly looking for ways to improve their services in an ever-growing and rapidly changing industry. Metaphor builds on an already award-winning hybrid service to offer a simple but significant upgrade to broadcast offerings.”
Metaphor has already been supplied for the Irish broadcaster RTÉ to support development of its Saorview Connect HbbTV solution and Italian free satellite operator tivùsat for its OTT service tivùon.
