"Freeview Explore will roll out on Freeview Play TVs and set-top boxes
this month and paves the way for Freeview to build a deeper relationship
with viewers. From today, users can search for programmes by genre or
programme name. The service features a scrolling carousel of 10 genres*
with recommendations from Freeview Play’s supported broadcasters
displaying in a new image-rich menu."

Well, the search facility would be useful. But the "recommendations"? No
thanks.


My old(ish) Humax Fox can search for programmes in the EPG by name
(actually substring) or genre, and also has an (annoying) recommendation
feature (that I can't turn off). So what's new?
