Hybrid TV - Channel Portal
The Hybrid TV Channel Portal is an opportunity to give your connected TV viewers what they want - an enhanced TV experience with more choice and more content.
The Hybrid TV Channel Portal supports up to nine different IP-delivered channels, although one broadcast channel can be included as part of the nine, on a connected Freeview HD TV or set-top box (STB). The Channel Portal service provides broadcasters with the opportunity to deliver richer content through branded portals with an intuitive navigational experience.
Give connected audiences the content they've been waiting for...
The Channel Portal is accessible directly through the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG). Users can access the content directly by keying in the channel number through their remote control, or from within a DTT channel via the red button.
- The Channel Portal allows multiple channels to be grouped by a parent brand, improving your presence on the Freeview television platform, as well as your value to advertisers.
- Group channels by theme, such as music or travel, to help keep viewers engaged with your content.
