What we do
Freeview is a 'horizontal' platform - rather than controlling the whole service end-to-end, we work closely with a range of partners to provide a great viewer experience.
Our partners include set-top box manufacturers, multiplex operators, TV channels, on-demand content providers, schedule providers, the transmission provider Arqiva, retailers, aerial installers, trade bodies and many others.
Our main activities
Freeview electronic programme guide (EPG)
We are licenced by Ofcom to provide the Freeview EPG (or TV guide). We assign channel numbers, coordinate channel launches and changes, and ensure there is correct information available about channels and programmes.
We create these for Freeview Play TVs and set-top boxes, working with manufacturers to give viewers access to exciting new features.
We help on-demand providers launch on the Freeview platform, working closely with them to ensure viewers can find great content through Search and Recommendations.
