Increase reach on Freeview Play, YouView, Freesat & EE TV
Increase your channel’s ratings by leveraging the increased interactivity available with the advanced IP-based capabilities of the hybrid TV platforms in the UK. The solution provides white-label HTML-5 applications, content metadata submission and the end-to-end video workflow needed to provide live streaming, automated catchup TV and rich VOD experiences cross-platform.
With approximately 4 million connected devices across these platforms and continued rapid uptake, the opportunity to reach wider audiences and grow revenues through incremental BARB rating, digital advertising and sponsorship sales has never been better.
On Demand App
EPGs are a crowded place. Stand out with your own app in the On Demand section of the platform’s native UI. Historically only available to the UK’s PSBs and leading SVOD services like Netflix, our Hybrid TV solution allows any channel to launch an On Demand app with minimal setup and cost.
28 Day Catchup
Our Live2Vod solution automatically creates and submits catchup programmes to the platform within 5 minutes of broadcast. Programmes are available to watch directly from the native EPG and via your own app. Catchup viewing counts towards your BARB rating for up to 28 days post broadcast.
