UK Free-to-Air TV
Standards support combined with product differentiation
The UK Free-to-Air TV market is a complex market for device manufacturers to enter. Today the broadcast standards are controlled through the Digital TV Group (DTG) using a series of specifications and test suites that ensure compliance with standards and the successful adoption of new and emerging content delivery mechanisms. ANT plays a major role in the guidance and development of new standards in the UK, sitting on several of the key DTG working groups.
By combining standards-based linear support with advanced IP-based service delivery, TV device manufacturers have a powerful opportunity to add value and differentiate their products.
ANT offers complete go-to-market Connected TV solutions for UK free-to-air service delivery. These solutions combine a fully DTG compliant middleware platform and application suite including PVR support. The ANT Galio Platform also offers full support for highly integrated IP service delivery that can be specified by TV device manufacturers. A wide range of IP services are available including the increasingly ubiquitous BBC iPlayer.
