UK Freesat Connected TV Set Top Boxes to Run on HbbTV – Not Youview?

Broadband TV News is reporting that Freesat is preparing to launch a new series of receivers that will run on the HbbTV (hybrid broadcast broadband) platform popularised in Germany and France.

Wait a minute.

What about Youview? You know, the UK cousin to the Euro HbbTV which is backed by  BT, the BBC, ITV and a host of other U.K. broadband providers,  and meant to bring video-on-demand to Freeview and Freesat and was notably rejected by Sky Virgin Media, IP Vision, Six TV, United For Local Television and the Open Source Consortium.
