nexTView Signal:


The nexTView standard was developed by the major European consumer electronics manufacturers under the hood of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) in 1995-1997 with the aim to offer an "electronic TV magazine" inside their analog TV sets. The transmission protocol is based on teletext, however using a compact binary format instead of preformatted text pages. The advantage compared to paper-based TV magazines is that you have an immediate overview what's running Now & Next, plus you can search through the programme database by many different filter categories. Now the nxtvepg software enables you to use nexTView with your PC too, and adds a lot of features that would not be possible to implement inside a TV set. The only preconditions are (a) that you have a TV tuner card for TV reception inside your PC and (b) that you receive one of the nexTView content provider's TV channels. Currently nexTView EPG is transmitted by the following TV stations:
  • in Germany and Austria: Kabel1, 3Sat, RTL-II, EuroNews (coverage: apx. 31 networks)
  • in Switzerland: SF1, TSR1, TSI1, EuroNews, 3sat, Kabel1 (coverage: apx. 37 networks)
  • in France: Canal+, M6 (coverage: 8 networks)
  • in Turkey: TRT-1 (coverage: 17 networks)
