Sweden-based pay-TV group Boxer has selected MHEG-5 as the interactive middleware to be included in all products marketed to receive its TV packages. The group chose MHEG-5 because it is preinstalled in the majority of integrated digital televisions sold in Europe.
MHEG-5 is a public standard with country- or region-specific profiles. Both free-to-air and pay-TV broadcasters are now looking into and deploying MHEG-5 as a low-cost middleware solution for rollout over terrestrial, satellite and cable platforms.
