The HbbTV Forum Nederland, a consortium of broadcasters, suppliers, distributors, and other stakeholders, has decided to use the 1.5 version of the international HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV) standard in the Netherlands. HbbTV, a new form of ‘super teletext’, offers a broad range of interactive television options to television viewers.
The choice made by the HbbTV Forum Nederland matches the choices made elsewhere in Europe, notably in France and Spain. This ensures that suitable television sets can be introduced sooner in the Dutch market.
