HD+ — provider of high-definition, free-to-air satellite channels to the German market — has joined the FreeTV Alliance.

The FreeTV Alliance, announced in September by Fransat, Freesat and Tivùsat, works to promote the harmonisation of free-to-view satellite TV services and technology across Europe.

Addressing the European market initially, the main goal of the FreeTV Alliance is to support the growth of free-to-view satellite TV services, by making it easier and more economical for manufacturers to develop innovative new products that deliver a superior customer viewing experience. To achieve this, the Alliance is producing a range of common recommendations and specifications based on open standards that will apply across set-top boxes and smart TVs. The first of these specifications will be launched later this year.

“HD+ is proud to be joining the FreeTV Alliance as we believe this will be a highly effective forum to contribute to the development of the free-to-air TV market,” comments Georges Agnes, Managing Director at HD+.
