The new Freeview Explore will demo core functionality, deliver the latest news on the Freeview channel line-up and provide a showcase for on demand content.
There’s also a scrolling carousel of 10 programme genres and the ability to search for programmes by genre or programme name; All, Comedy, Drama & Soaps, Entertainment, Factual, Kids, Lifestyle, Movies, Sport, and a dynamic seasonal category such as ‘Christmas’ or ‘Halloween’.
Guy North, Managing Director of Freeview said, “With more content than ever available, Freeview Explore creates an easy way for viewers to find the shows they love or discover new ones for the first time. With more product enhancements and new features in the pipeline, we’ll be providing a better service to our viewers, and our channel and TV manufacturing partners too. It’s an exciting time for Freeview Play.”
Freeview Explore will rollout to Freeview Play TV and set-top boxes over the next month.
