Liberoview is Saleria's digital terrestrial television platform. It is operated by Digital Saleria Inc., a joint venture between the Saleria Public Broadcasting Commission, Mediaset and Vision Communications. It was launched on 10 September 2004. The Italian word libero means free, which the word Liberoview means Freeview. It can be considered as the Salerian equivalent of the UK's Freeview DTT platform.

History

Digital terrestrial television was launched on 02 February 2000 in Saleria using the DVB-T standard, with a transition to widescreen on all of the digital terrestrial TV channels on 01 January 2001. Alongside with the digital simulcasts of SPBC 1, SPBC 2 and Rete Tre, additional channels were introduced into the digital terrestrial television lineup, such as SPBC K (children's television channel), SPBC Sport (sports channel), TeleCinema (movies channel), and SPBC Music (music channel).

During the early months after its launch, the majority of viewers did not how to buy a digital set-top box in order to receive the digital channels. In August 2000, Digital Saleria worked with the Saleria Public Broadcasting Commission and Mediaset created public service announcements in order to instruct the viewers on how to buy a digital set-top box. The public service announcements sparked an increase in viewers who tuned in to digital terrestrial TV channels by 5-10%.

On 10 September 2004, Liberoview was founded as a joint venture between the Saleria Public Broadcasting Commission, Mediaset and Vision Communications. The first set of Liberoview-branded digital set-top boxes were launched on 1 October 2004.

On 10 July 2010, Liberoview launched Liberoview HD, an high-definition version of the Liberoview digital terrestrial television platform. It uses the DVB-T2 high-definition broadcasting standard, which means that existing DVB-T based set-top boxes are not compatible with the service.

On 05 April 2016, Liberoview Play, an addition to the service, was launched. It combines the Liberoview set-top box with internet connectivity support. It can be used to watch catch-up services (such as Mediaset Play and SPBC Now) and streaming services (such as Amazon Prime and Netflix), as well as watching YouTube videos and stream music via Spotify.

Liberoview set-top boxes

Note: In addition to these set-top boxes, many modern television sets that are sold in Saleria after 2010 have a built-in Liberoview receiver, which it can receive DVB-T and DVB-T2 digital television channels.

Current

  • Liberoview+ - The Liberoview+ set-top boxes are similar to the Liberoview/Liberoview HD set-top boxes, but with the ability to record from television channels. Most of the Liberoview+ set-top boxes feature a removable 2.5-inch hard drive and a USB slot, while some set-top boxes (particularly in the low price range) either only have a USB-based recording functionality or none at all. It was introduced in 2005, just a year after the Liberoview brand was launched. Currently, a typical Liberoview+ set-top box without the recording functionality costs around €30 to €45, while a typcial Liberoview+ set-top box with recording functionality (plus, a 500GB hard drive) costs around €120.
  • Liberoview Play - The Liberoview Play set-top boxes features the best of both worlds, combining the recording functionality with built-in Internet connectivity. It allows viewers to watch catch-up services (such as Mediaset Infinity and SPBC Now) and streaming services (such as Amazon Prime, Disney+ and Netflix), as well as watching YouTube videos and stream music via Spotify. A typical Liberoview Play set-top box with a 500GB hard drive costs around €199.

Discontinued

  • Liberoview/Liberoview HD - The Liberoview/Liberoview HD set-top boxes are standard digital terrestrial television set-top boxes that receives digital channels in DVB-T/T2 format, as well as radio stations and interactive/text services. It was introduced on 1 October 2004, although DVB-T based set-top boxes had already been available in the market since 2000. It was discontinued in April 2019, though the licensing of the Liberoview/Liberoview HD brand continues for new set-top boxes.
