Scheduled Content and Hybrid Tuner APIs

Support in HbbTV

Available since: HbbTV 1.0 (ETSI TS 102 796 V1.1.1, OIPF DAE V1.1)

This section SHALL apply to OITFs that have indicated support for tuner control (i.e.  <video_broadcast>true</video_broadcast> as defined in section 9.3.1) in their capability. It describes the video/broadcast embedded object needed to support display and control by a DAE application of scheduled content received over local tuner functionality available to an OITF, including the conveyance of the channel list to the server. The term “tuner” is used here to identify a piece of functionality to enable switching between different types of scheduled content services that are identified through logical channels. This includes IP broadcast channels, as well as traditional broadcast channels received over a hybrid tuner.
