Uniting the experience
of watching broadcast
and WebTV.

AstroTV is now AstroTV+

AstroTV+ (Plus) is the new version of AstroTV, the market leader DTVi middleware which is available in more than 15 million TV sets and set-top boxes sold in Brazil and Latin America.

While the focus of AstroTV was to offer the best and most complete experience in Ginga interactivity, AstroTV+ aims to harmonize the content of broadcast TV channels and WebTVs, aggregating them into a single interface that lets the user browse through them via switching channels.

When purchasing a product with AstroTV+, the user will have access not only to interactive applications, but also to a variety of Internet video channels offering live and on-demand content. Everything is customizable: the user sets up his or her own channel list and chooses what to watch from a shop that brings together varied content from various partners.
