Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF)
The ORF-TVthek - the streaming portal of Austria's public broadcaster presents itself in a completely new look and feel. It is now available via mobile apps Android and iOS smartphones & tablets as well as on the web. In the course of the relaunch numerous services were optimized and new additional features integrated. Thus, ORF-TVthek offers the entire range of ORF and all TV genres from information and sports, through culture to entertainment, in an even more attractive way and with optimized usabiltiy.
The video content is much clearer presented within individual headings and lanes, the ‘Favourites Function’ is offered more prominently in the navigation. This allows users to select their favourite programs even faster and more conveniently than before. The program of the ‘ORF-Landesstudios’ will be presented even more prominently in the new "Austria Stage". A "Live Lane" with teaser images on the start page also keeps you up-to-date on the current or next live-streams of the four ORF-TV channels. Furthermore, the editorial staff can now integrate the uncommented "Live Specials" as a top highlight on the start page as well as on the live overview page, enabling an improved and quicker look at this offer as well. ORF-TVthek's front-end programming is based on the WCAG 2.0 guidelines - with direct links to more than 50% of all ORF-TVthek broadcasts, subtitles, Austrian sign language, audio description or transcription are available. The rollout for other platforms, such as Smart TV-app, cable network apps as well as Apple TV, Android TV and Amazon Fire TV, and the ORF-TVthek app in the ÖBB WLAN portal will follow in the second and third quarters of 2019.
