BBC to accelerate HbbTV development

   | 24 June 2016

In a huge boost to the development of the standard, the BBC has forged a plan to move beyond legacy MHEG technology to industry-wide adoption of HbbTV 2.0.1 in time for equipment manufacturers to build HbbTV into 2018 product cycles.

HbbTV 8 APrilThe hybrid broadcast broadband TV standard is designed to provide an open technology platform that combines broadcast TV services with those delivered via broadband, enabling access to Internet-only services for consumers using connected TVs and set-top boxes (STBs).

Now working in collaboration with Freeview, DUK and the DTG, the BBC intends to remove the MHEG requirement from the 'BBC Interactive HTML application' specification, and work with industry partners to align other specifications such as the D-Book owned by the DTG, and the Freeview Play specification and Trade Mark Licence framework managed by Digital UK and Freeview.

Working in close consultation with manufacturers and other affected parties, a plan will be developed by the BBC, Freeview, Digital UK and the DTG by September 2016. It will then be shared publicly in relevant industry forums. The plan will include, among other things, the development and sharing of test applications to enable manufacturers to ensure correct behaviour of the new HbbTV-based services. The BBC believes this approach addresses the feedback received to date from manufacturers while balancing the needs of audiences to drive the industry forwards and provide a better environment for UK free-to-air services.
