The Digital European Forum celebrated its 15th edition last 14th June in Lucca, Italy. It comes as no surprise that the jury elected the Sat.tv app as the winner of the hybrid category “the most user-friendly pan-regional EPG platform”.
Launched in April 2016 by Eutelsat, one of the world’s leading satellite operators and Wiztivi, a leader in multiscreen TV solutions, the Sat.tv app transformed navigation of free satellite TV channels for millions of HOT BIRD viewers.
Designed after TIMELESSUI
Sat.tv is a smart Electronic Program Guide designed after TIMELESSUI for TV sets, tablets and smartphones which addresses homes equipped for DTH reception of Eutelsat’s HOT BIRD satellites. The app has been designed to refine the free-to-air viewing experience for consumers and improve broadcaster engagement with their audience. Available in five languages, the EPG interface is user-friendly and benefits from an easy navigation and personalised recommendations.
Using the WIZTIVIFRAMEWORK
Wiztivi is proud to have been once again next to Eutelsat in this tremendous project and to have contributed to the success of Sat.tv, thanks to its multiscreen UI Software Development Kit (SDK), the WIZTIVIFRAMEWORK. This browser-based environment of development, resulting from more than 10 years of experience in the development and design of user interfaces and interactive applications, enables fast, attractive, and inexpensive UX/UI deployment by using one code for multiple devices.
