Building and connecting audience with Connect TV
We’re going to be at MIPTV in Cannes talking about our services. And if you’re going to the show we’d like you to join us at our stand (16.17, 1st floor) to find out more about how this award-winning technology can help you reach the fast-growing connected Freeview audience.
From a single channel, to a channel portal or a hybrid channel that can dynamically switch between DTT and IP delivery – Connect TV enables you to deliver your channels to the Freeview EPG. Even better, we have the tools that can help you build a deeper, richer understanding of your audiences and create new revenue streams.
It’s all supported by our experience, expertise and proven track record for delivery that is second to none.

Arqiva acquires Connect TV
Arqiva, the communications infrastructure and media services company, has acquired Connect TV the innovative connected TV service provider. The acquisition will enable Arqiva to develop a wide range of connected TV services for Digital Terrestrial Television, the UK’s most popular TV platform.
The Connect TV platform enables broadcasters and content owners to use the internet to provide their new channels and services to the fast growing connected Digital Terrestrial market. Existing Freeview broadcasters can enhance their services through the addition of complementary services and content accessed via the red button, a unique or a shared channel number. As well as offering a greater choice of free content, the Connect TV platform can also allow viewers to access subscription services or purchase goods.
Charles Constable, Managing Director of Digital Platforms at Arqiva said: “Arqiva is dedicated to providing viewers across the UK with the best possible television experience. The acquisition of Connect TV will enable us to provide viewers with a greater choice on a much wider scale. We recognise the best in British entrepreneurial technology and look forward to working with the passionate team from Connect TV to cement the position of Digital Terrestrial Television as the primary delivery channel in the UK.”
Jonathan Marshall, CTO of Connect TV said “Arqiva’s acquisition of Connect TV makes this a very exciting time both for us and for the future of broadcasting technology in the UK. The acquisition offers viewers an exciting new TV viewing platform with fantastic opportunities to create greater functionality and routes to access content. Arqiva’s profile and expertise will not only speed up the platform’s development, but help to provide Arqiva’s existing customers with complementary, value added services.”
Digital Terrestrial services continue to represent the bedrock of British television accounting for about 60% of total viewing.
Arqiva, the communications infrastructure and media services company, operates at the heart of the broadcast, satellite and mobile communications markets. The company is at the forefront of network solutions and services in the digital world. Arqiva provides much of the infrastructure behind television, radio, satellite and wireless communications in the UK. Customers include major broadcasters such as the BBC, ITV, BSkyB and the independent radio groups, major telco providers including the UK’s four mobile network operators, and the emergency services.
