Freeview’s world-first Freeview FV mobile app has won the International Grand Prix Award and Best TV/Video Service Update or Launch Award at the Connie Awards, announced overnight in London.
Freeview was the only Australian company to win an award.
The Connies recognise innovation and the emerging best practice from across all sectors of the media landscape around the world.
“These awards are a true honour, particularly given the incredible depth and range of other award entries in the Connies. To be acknowledged at this level on the international stage is once again great testament to successful collaboration,” said Freeview CEO Elizabeth Ross.
“The vision, design and user experience were developed through great teamwork which brought together the best and brightest digital experts from within our broadcasters and our Freeview staff.”
Earlier in the week, Freeview FV was also announced as a finalist for the AIMIA’s 23rd annual AMY Awards in the entertainment and media smartphone or tablet application category.
Freeview was launched in November last year and delivers live streaming of 20 FTA TV channels plus catchup content.
