HbbTV (Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Television)

HbbTV is an acronym that stands for Hybrid Broadcast Broadband Television. By supplementing and combining existing standards such as DVB and Internet technologies, this standard makes it possible for a TV set or set-top box to receive and display special, HbbTV-conformant websites. It features TV-specific functions such as navigation with RC keys and background control of the broadcast video. An HbbTV website is signaled via the broadcast channel. Data can be transmitted both via the broadcast channel and via the Internet.
