excellent! Looking forward to it :-)
one question: Is this new layout fixed to 16:9 or does it automatically adapt also to 21:9 if available?
Sorry Alex, still 16:9 format, it does not stretch or adapt to 21:9.
First we will put an announcement on the TV.
When accessing Net TV you will also see a “coming soon” message.
A few days later we will put it live.
looks very promising! Thanks for the details on the new portal!
I like the new layout and styling. The pictures explain the functionality quite good, one is getting a good picture of the changes.
Yes, I have just seen it, too.
If you follow the link, you can see a screenshot of the new portal.
I have been following the link "Coming soon" a second time. Then there was a different picture shown.
I have never seen this screen when talking about SmartTV. Is this the screen for 2009 TVs, since they do not support PiP?
Or is this an updated version for 2010? I don't think so, to remove the PiP would be a step backwards.
On all pictures, I do not see a description for the red button. Is there no function? Or is this a surprise? Or will it get an description if a function is available in a specific context?
"App Gallery" might be a function for the red button.
I can't remember whery exactly, but I think, I have read this somewhere in the specs/ads of the Opera TV platform. Something like 1280x720 has to be supported as minimum and 1920x1080 is optionally. Somewhere in the guidelines of creating apps for the opera store...
Found the requirement in TV App Development Documentation published by Opera:
I'm speculating: Maybe the new portal I now opend via the blue button, which does not have any effect during watching TV. The red button cannot be used since this opens the HBBTV offerings. However, the portal is closed via the red button.
But we will see - as Mark announced the portal go live some days after the "comming soon" messages... ;-)
Would like to see the new look of IPG ............
Or is the update provided all there is ???????????
Also in the dutch NetTV is the 'coming soon', so I will be watching NetTV each day next week... :D
