[Via Satellite 11-19-13] Eutelsat, in collaboration with Orange Group, is presenting a white paper published by Idate titled “Advanced TV Services for all, Available Now with Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV Solutions.”

Based on examples in key markets that include Korea (Olleh TV Skylife), the United States (DirecTV), France (a Fransat partnership with Samsung), Poland (Orange Polska) and the United Kingdom (Freesat), the paper presents how hybrid solutions are delivering a high-quality viewing experience, while adapting to the specific features of national markets and the requirements of viewers, broadcasters, platform operators, telcos and manufacturers of electronic equipment.

The paper also underlines how hybrid broadcast broadband TV unites the complementary assets of broadcast TV and broadband Internet, providing cost-efficient linear TV and on-demand TV experiences. This quick-to-market solution combines the efficiency of broadcasting for homogenous, live, quality TV with the advantages of broadband networks for delivering individual choice of on-demand content.
