Internet connected TV’s from 2011 and beyond will automatically show a red button indication in the right bottom of the screen, when zapping channels.
Pressing the red button will provide the Hbb-TV widget.
From there you can select and enter Hbb-TV websites.
Models of 2009 & 2010 are not able to show the red-button indicator nor the Hbb-TV widget.
These TVs will directly enter the Hbb-TV website when pressing the red button.
In case of DVB-C usages: Some cable companies do not support the red button signal from the broadcaster because they already have defined other use for the red button on the remote control. (like Ziggo & UPC).
In most countries the red button for Hbb-TV is supported via DVB-T and DVB-S.
For DVB-C it depends on cooperation of the cable company.
If the broadcaster allows us, and if the Hbb-TV site is fully functional, we are adding Apps to our portal referring to Hbb-TV sites as well.
Hbb-TV sites are a direct responsibility of the broadcaster.
Please write you experiences with Hbb-TV sites here.
