Dailymotion smarter apps for connected TVs

March 19, 2013

dailymotionDailymotion, the world’s second largest video site, has launched its new home entertainment strategy with the release of new and updated apps for Smart TVs.

Dailymotion’s new Internet-connected TV apps and streaming services pull content from users’ Dailymotion web profiles to allow continuous playback, in addition to browsing for new content –providing a ‘lean-back experience’.

The apps will integrate adverts in a way which mimics traditional broadcast advertising, making them less invasive to the viewing experience.

The revamped apps also see improved interfaces, more intuitive navigation and improved search functionality with auto-complete and history, across all of Dailymotion’s streaming platforms. User playlists, subscriptions and personal videos are available directly on the TV app with an option to bookmark favorites for later viewing.

New apps are now available for LG Electronics and Samsung Smart TVs, and updates available for a variety of platforms across the globe, including Orange, Tivo for Ono, Roku and other IPTV and streaming services like Foxxum Smart TV Portal. Dailymotion is working to become compatible with all device sharing protocols, ensuring access to Dailymotion videos on all platforms.
