There are three layouts available for the info banner: Standard view, Extended view and Service info.
Standard view is shown after a channel zap or by pressing a dedicated key on the remote controller. When zapping, info banner closes automatically after 5s. Arrows only appear when user triggers the info banner and in that case info banner remains visible. If user browses the events and goes to another date then the corresponding date will appear above the service indicators. Following information are shown in the standard view: Service index, Active channel indicator, Service name, UHD/HD indicator, Dolby indicator, PayTV indicator, Skip channel indicator, Locked channel indicator, Extended info availability indicator, Current event name, Event start and ending time, Progress bar of the current event, Current time and date.
Extended view is activated when user presses the INFO button in standard view.

In Extended view there is also an information of how to Schedule or Record the future event (on the current event those information will not be available).
Service Info is accessed when pressing INFO button while in Extended view. Service info shows information about the carrier and the ACTIVE service.
