Freesat is a subscription free satellite TV service offering more than 200 TV & radio channels and 10 On Demand services to everyone in the UK. In 2015 Freesat launched Metaphor, a smart TV guide solution for terrestrial, cable and satellite TV operators and CE manufacturers looking to deploy hybrid broadcast broadband TV services. Metaphor is based on the award-winning Freetime service in the UK which integrates both linear TV with on demand services supported by smart features such as pause, rewind and record, a seven day forwards and backwards guide, on demand content and the popular Freetime mobile app. 

Metaphor offers a fully customisable and scalable service, which appeals to platform operators for its value, speed and quality. The service is supported by Freesat’s UK based designers, engineers and operational staff.
