Netherlands adopts HbbTV 1.5

Thursday 28 March 2013 | 17:00 CET | News
The HbbTV Forum Netherlands, a consortium of broadcasters, suppliers, distributors and other industry stakeholders, has decided to use version 1.5 of the international HbbTV standard. Other countries, such as Spain and France, have already adopted the standard. An HbbTV device connected to the internet can provide additional information from the broadcaster, such as programme-related apps, background information and video. Other possibilities include 'what's on' and 'coming up' information, switching to other relevant programmes and interactive applications such as time-shifting.
