Digital UK has received an industry award from the HbbTV Association for its development of the new showcase Freeview Explore feature currently being rolled out to Freeview Play devices.
Freeview Explore lets viewers browse recommendations from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, Demand 5 and UKTV Play, or quickly search the thousands of shows which are available to watch on-demand.
The easy to use app was praised by judges at the first HbbTV Awards held in Rome this week for its seamless integration of services.
James Jackson, Technology Director at Digital UK, said: ‘Freeview Explore provides the perfect way for Freeview Play viewers to catch-up with the TV they love or discover new and exciting shows for the first time.
“We’re delighted to receive this award from the HbbTV Association in recognition of the hard work of the teams at Digital UK and Freeview, and the support of our manufacturing partners.’
