For the first time, viewers will be able to access additional information on all actors and locations via the HbbTV service "Xplore" during the streaming of Polizeiruf 110 "Der Fremde im Spiegel" on 27 October 2022, 10.15 pm.

Viewers start the "Xplore" service via the "Polizeiruf 110" widget in the ARD start application for HbbTV. As soon as the film is paused, pictures and names of the actors and locations appear, which can be accessed directly via the remote control. At the end of the film, all the information can also be called up in an overview.

"For viewers, Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg thus offers completely new possibilities for additional information integrated directly on the screen," says Dirk Lüdemann, Head of HA Distribution within the Production and Operations

Directorate of rbb. "It is also conceivable with this service to link to other content and programmes - that has a lot of potential."

The Xplore function should run on all HbbTV devices and there are no special requirements for use. Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg (rbb) is bringing this ARD innovation to screens across Germany for the first time. The service JAY of the technology company transfermedia production services GmbH from Babelsberg is used for this.
