Metrological and Liberty partner on apps and widgets

September 12, 2011

Metrological Media Innovations and Liberty Global have announced that Liberty Global will adopt Metrological’s Widget framework for its Next Generation TV platform – Project Horizon. The Widget framework establishes the bridge between Internet delivered content and pay-tv services in order to provide digital television subscribers a range of innovative interactive applications and enhanced services.

The Widget Framework will power the App & Widget Store that is part of the new TV platform. In this store subscribers will be offered a full catalogue of web-based Apps & Widgets that are seamlessly integrated in the user interface.

With the social media Widget, viewers can share whatever they are watching with their friends and recommend it. TV-show related Widgets provide background information and the possibility to interact in real-time with the TV programme without having to move away from the programme itself.
