This Plugfest forms part of a week-long series of events, which also includes the HbbTV Testing Event, focusing only on the HbbTV test suite v2024-1 validation, and HbbTV Testing Group meeting from Wednesday February 28th to Friday March 1st. The testing event is open to HbbTV members only.

It provides an opportunity for the HbbTV implementers to execute tests on their devices and log those executions as part of the evidence required to approve test cases for the HbbTV test suite v2024-1 release. The representatives of Test Material Providers will be available to discuss problems found with either the test material or implementation. The testing event participants will have temporary access to the test harness, necessary for executing the test cases at the event. The test plan will be distributed to the event participants a day before. Participants should be TRAA assignees to have access to the HbbTV Test Repository.
