The channel is a new streaming TV service that bundles a curated selection of free-to-air TV channels of various genres and languages, delivering them to the Freeview platform OTT.
Channelbox’s user interface remembers the previously watched TV channel, presenting it by default on subsequent visits.
For content providers, the company says that this offers the equivalent user experience of a dedicated Freeview channel at lower cost and it does so whilst increasing the potential audience for their channel.
Users can navigate to the channel and then access a variety of OTT channels on a TV set connected to an aerial and the internet.
Channelbox says that the service presents numerous benefits to broadcasters, including cost effectiveness, fast and simple on-boarding, and no requirement for a broadcast license as all content is delivered via IP.
Channelbox’s current lineup includes such TV channels as France24, Hellenic TV, Faith UK, Retro Movies and Law&Crime with more to be announced in the next month.
