Vision247 streamlines VisionTV’s search

January 19, 2016

Broadcast specialist Vision247 has introduced a granular genre menu to VisionTV to streamline search functionality. The addition is available via its portal on Freeview channel 244 on TV, desktop, EETV and via the VisionTV UK app.

VisionTV consists of more than 20 free-to-air channels, allowing viewers to watch a wide variety of both UK and international programmes covering entertainment, sport, news, religion and shopping. The new genre menu aims to streamline VisionTV’s search functionality making it easier for viewers to navigate through numerous categories via set-top box, desktop, EETV and the VisionTV UK app.

To coincide with the addition of the genre menu, Vision247 introduced three channels: ABP News, Revelation and The Jewellery channel. ABP News is the first Hindi News Channel to launch nationally on the Freeview platform.

Ashok Venkatramani, CEO of ABP News Network Pvt. Ltd., says “The UK is an important market for us and it is our endeavour to provide credible news and updates to the South Asian community in UK through multiple platforms. The launch of ABP News on Freeview UK enables us to reach out to a new audience and increase our viewer base.”
