DTG's D-Book makes HbbTV mandatory for first time – Digital TV Europe

The Digital Television Group has released D-Book 12.6 - the latest update that sets out the technical interoperability requirements for digital terrestrial and hybrid delivery television in the UK, underpinning Freeview, YouView, Freesat, EE TV, BT TV and TalkTalk TV. The latest edition of the D-Book mandates support for the HbbTV hybrid broadcast-broadband standard for the first time. D-Book 9 introduced the optional support of HbbTV, but the ongoing transition from the older UK-centric MHEG standard means that the latter now becomes optional, while HbbTV is mandatory. - www.digitaltveurope.com
