DTG Testing, is the industry’s not-for-profit test centre, for complete Freeview Play Conformance testing. Certification for Freeview Play receivers breaks down into two parts; D-Book conformance and Freeview Play certification.

D-Book Conformance

This is the broadcast element of Freeview Play devices. For this, you will need access to the DTG D-Book, which is FREE for DTG Members or £50,000 for a single edition for non-members.

No member has the right to share the D-Book lawfully with other organisations. You should also be aware that the cost of unauthorised use of the D-Book is £50,000, which is also the cost of a single edition to non-members. If you are developing a UK DTT Freeview device, you need lawful access to the D-Book to avoid problems in the future. You should also be aware that we inform UK retailers of the identities of all the organisations with access to the D-Book so that they can ensure that their suppliers are fully entitled to use the specification and they can therefore range their products.
