The Baeble Music app is also now live in the Opera TV Store, Opera Software’s application platform for 12 of the leading international manufacturers in the smart TV space."
More than 75 million smart TVs shipped worldwide last year. In the US, Baeble’s app reaches more than 55% of all smart TVs.

In addition, Baeble has also published this as an upgraded app available in the Google Play Store for Android and Google TV set top boxes. The app is optimized for navigation and control with a standard television remote control.
This new video app brings to television Baeble’s exclusive collection of more than 800 concerts, sessions and interviews representing more than 300 hours of Baeble produced materials plus thousands of other music videos from the best music acts of today and tomorrow. Baeble focuses on bringing to life high quality exclusive performances and portraits of artists and bands in concert halls and other unique environments and venues around the country. Baeble is already a vibrant and innovative music destination on the web with more than three million unique visitors in December 2013 alone. And, with these new distribution channels now available worldwide, Baeble is emerging as the leading independent curated destination for music content on next generation television platforms.
“Video and music apps are by far the most in-demand content on the Opera TV Store, and Baeble represents the perfect fusion of the two. We look forward to bringing Opera TV Store viewers a concert in their living rooms through Baeble’s video channel of the latest music acts and performances,” says Michael Winneker, Senior Business Development Manager for TV & Devices, Opera Software.
David Moffly, Baeble’s CEO, comments. “Our new app designed for these leading consumer brands represents the continued expansion of our brand and our high quality exclusive library across the spectrum of points of video consumption. We believe that channels on smart TVs and on internet enabled television platforms will become ubiquitous over time and will become the preeminent destinations for television viewer’s daily viewing habits. Smart TV channel usage will continue its rapid growth as more of these devices enter the market on a worldwide scale. Smart TVs particularly appeal to the “Generation Never” of young consumers whose needs are met with a device like this and a home data service.”
