Synapse TV is enabling the re-launch of Vision TV on Freeview in the UK.
The new service will be accessed via the Freeview EPG and deliver a number of UK and international free-to-air channels streamed to compatible Freeview HD connected TVs and boxes.
Synapse TV utilises proven technology from Strategy & Technology (S&T) and specialist third parties to provide a comprehensive and cost-effective cloud-based managed service for content owners and aggregators. It allows over-the-top (OTT) delivery of on-demand content and linear services.
“Vision TV further extends the attraction of Freeview, offering viewers seamless access to more channels,” comments Petra Oblak, CEO of Vision247, which operates Vision TV. “For broadcasters this presents the opportunity to reach the huge and rapidly growing number of households that have a compatible and connected Freeview HD TV or box in a way that is simple and, crucially, economically viable.”
