Satellite, TV and communication equipment distributor, Eurosat, is integrating Miniweb’s Connected TV Services Platform into its new generation of Manhattan branded Freeview boxes.

The deal will add internet video and personalisation features to the Manhattan Set Top Box, with a UK launch planned later in the year.

Miniweb’s technology will enable easy navigation and consumption of internet video, and will also provide global search, recommendations, related content, personalization, micropayments and community/social networking features.

Miniweb’s platform makes it easy to integrate internet video publishers, offering a new revenue stream and allowing viewers to search for content across all providers with a single action.

Jerome de Vitry, Miniweb’s CEO, said: “Adding Miniweb’s content guide and services platform to Eurosat’s award winning range of Manhattan HD set top boxes provides Freeview consumers with an enhanced viewing experience and easy discovery and consumption of a wide variety of internet video.”

Miniweb has also announced a similar deal with Turkish “white label” consumer electronics manufacturer, Vestel Electronics.

Miniweb will integrate its Connected TV Services Platform into Vestel’s HbbTV set top boxes, which will be launched in Germany later this year.
