froob: Sounds like they are overhauling and rebranding FreeviewPlus? That sounds like the real headline, rather than an updated DishTV recorder.Freeview will also soon be launching a seamless new Freeview On Demand platform – which will replace the existing FreeviewPlus service and will be rolled out over the next three months.
While FreeviewPlus has been popular with viewers wanting access to the TV Guide and On Demand services, the fragmented nature of content delivery through various network streaming apps made it difficult to use.
In a truly viewer-centric approach, the new Freeview On Demand platform will feature a single application combining all broadcaster content in one simple-to-use interface for both content discovery and streaming.
The new Freeview On Demand platform will be available across all new and existing smart TVs released since 2015, HbbTV-capable set top boxes and recorders connected to both broadband internet and a TV antenna (satellite dish or UHF aerial).
You are right, the entire experience will be overhauled instead of the guide taking you to the individual app of the broadcaster, all content will be on one video player, saving time and confusion and possible bugs
Can you con firm that it will only have 2 tuners and if so why?
