ETSI - TS 103 606
Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Television; Operator Applications
|Publication Date:||1 May 2018|
The present document specifies a platform, based on the existing HbbTV® specification ETSI TS 102 796 , that supports the signalling, transport and presentation of an operator application. The operator application is able to replace some of the terminal's user interface. The extent to which the terminal user interface is replaced by an operator application depends on the type of the operator application and the business models of the operator and manufacturer. The present document assumes the presence of an agreement between an operator and the device manufacturer. Operator applications will not run in the absence of such an agreement. Topics that could or need to be covered by such a bilateral agreement are listed in annex D.
The present document makes use of functionalities described in ETSI TS 102 796  which is describing a platform for signalling, transport, and presentation of enhanced and interactive applications intended for running on hybrid terminals that include both a DVB compliant broadcast connection and a broadband connection to the Internet. The usage of a hybrid terminal for IPTV delivered audio-visual content is described in "IP-delivered Broadcast Channels and Related Signalling of HbbTV Applications" [i.4].
