HbbTV Association Brings v2.0 to Operator Applications

The HbbTV Association is to create a specification for operator applications, based on HbbTV 2.0. These are apps offered by a TV service provider, and running on a smart TV or STB. They deliver the ‘key elements’ of the user experience, such as a TV guide. Going forward, service providers will be able to develop their applications using commonly-used web technologies, including HTML5.
