The Czech Republic state broadcaster Česká Televize (CT) has added two children’s online applications to the HbbTV services offered alongside its broadcast channels. One app provides information and video on children’s programmes broadcast on CT channels and the second offers an interactive children’s video-based quiz for up to four viewers. Both apps are accessed via the Red Button on HbbTV TVs and set-top boxes.
CT broadcasts six general and thematic channels from the ASTRA 23.5°E satellites. HbbTV is an open technology platform to seamlessly combine broadcast TV and online services on TVs and set-top boxes, and was established by the HbbTV consortium of broadcasting and electronics companies, including SES (operator of the ASTRA satellites).
