The Czech Republic’s Slagr TV (‘Hit TV’) has made its HbbTV service available to DTH viewers.
According to Parabola, its HbbTV application can now be accessed nationally via Astra 3B at 23.5 degrees.
Quoting Robert Kvapil, Slgar TV’s commercial director, it adds that as a result it expects the use of the app to increase by 100,000 from its current level of 250,000.
As previously reported by Broadband TV News, Slagr TV last month became the latest Czech broadcaster to introduce HbbTV.
Slagr TV is distributed terrestrially on the third DTT multiplex, which is operated by Ceske radiokomunikace (CRa).
