HD Plus, a subsidiary of the Luxembourg-based satellite operator SES Astra, has concluded an exclusive agreement with the Hamburg-based portal operator NetRange regarding the development and operation of an Internet-based, interactive portal solution. As a result, all new receivers that have the corresponding technical capability will be equipped with the HD InterActive feature from NetRange. The first Internet-enabled receivers should already be introduced to the market by manufacturers in 2011.
NetRange MMH is Europe’s largest independent white label portal operator for web-based interactive television. HD Plus markets the product HD+, a new and additional range of channels provided via satellite in HD quality.
