Freeview launches online TV guide
- — 22 March, 2010 17:23
The online Freeview TV Guide provides a schedule of seven days' viewing across all the Freeview channels, displaying them in an easy to read grid similar to Foxtel’s What’s On TV guide.
“The Freeview online TV guide is a fast and very convenient way for viewers to look up all their favourite programs, and has been developed as a direct result of viewer demand,” said Freeview CEO Robin Parkes.
The guide features channel information, program start and finish times, program titles, as well as details of shows such as classifications, genre and a brief description of the content. Freeview is also set to launch an electronic program guide (EPG) later this year.
Freeview, owned by Australia’s free-to-air broadcasters, does not endorse PVRs (digital set-top boxes that record TV) that are capable of skipping ads.
