We're coming up on the one-year anniversary of the HbbTV Operator App (OpApp for short) spec and already we've seen the first service launch. In September, Tivùsat became the first operator to launch an OpApp – Tivùon. And soon we'll see other OpApps launch from operators in the 35 countries where HbbTV is deployed.
If you're not familiar with HbbTV Operator Apps, we thought now might be a good time to get you up to speed – you're going to hear the term often over the coming years. Here are a few of the most asked questions about HbbTV OpApps.
