Broadband TV News is reporting that YouView CEO Richard Halton has told IBC delegates that the BBC-telco led hybrid platform is exploring the options for the second screen.

“There are different partnership opportunities, so what I am looking for is how you treat this in the home, using a second screen app,” said Halton. “The cloud is too far away to control the TV, so you’re looking at Wi-Fi”.

Halton said he was open to suggestion, saying that although some elements might be brought forward in the autumn, he was a long way from making an announcement.”

Mindful of what is likely to be an older audience not used to the ‘pay-TV’ experience, Halton said that most second screen applications were a little ahead of the Freeview consumer, but resolving some of those fundamentals now was very important.
