London, UK (PRWEB UK) 8 July 2014
Through their cooperation with Opera Software, TV App Agency has been successful in delivering Smart TV apps and maximising reach for their customers via a huge range of devices carrying the Opera TV Store, such as Sony, Hisense, Mediatek, Humax, Samsung, TCL, Swisscom, Changhong, TiVo, Amino, Konka and Skyworth. All these platforms are supported by TV App Agency’s TV App Engine, meaning native apps for each platform can be generated from a single set of code.
The Opera TV Store is an HTML5-based storefront of exciting web apps optimized for TV. The store gives the user a comfortable, “lean-back” experience, using a standard TV remote control to navigate, select and launch apps easily. The Opera TV Store is already deployed globally with some of the world’s biggest TV and connected device manufacturers.
Irish broadcaster TG4 is the latest customer to benefit from this partnership, with the app now available across all the major Smart TV platforms and devices featuring the Opera TV Store. TG4 is now the 25th app developed by TV App Agency in the Opera TV Store, with more currently in development scheduled to be available on the platform soon.
TV App Agency have also developed apps for brands such as Coca-Cola, Pelmorex Media Inc., National Film Board, Global Radio, CBN, La Cascara.tv, NRJ, Mundo Deportivo, La Vanguardia, 20 Minutos and Karnaval.
Bruno Pereira, TV App Agency Co-Founder and Director, explains, “Opera has been a great partner to us with this constant growth of OEMs offering the Opera TV Store, and has enabled us to provide more and more reach for each of our customers.”
Daniel Nordberg, Head of Content Acquisition for TV & Devices at Opera Software, adds, "TV App Agency has reached a milestone in helping bring exciting and diverse content to the Opera TV Store, providing even more entertainment options to Opera TV Store viewers in millions of living rooms across the globe."
Smart TVs have a significant role to play in the connected home and are key to extending new services and experiences to consumers, with a recent report suggesting that shipments of Smart TVs could reach a staggering 153 million by the end of 2016.
