Vonetize, Toshiba partner for European Smart TV service
May 5, 2015
Vonetize, a fully-managed VoD service, has forged a partnership with consumer electronics company Toshiba which will see seven of Vonetize’s VoD themed channels feature on Toshiba Smart TVs in countries across Europe.
According to Vonetize, the launch of these channels on Toshiba devices in Europe furthers its goal of providing the missing link in the VoD supply chain between content owners, device manufacturers and consumers hungry for quality content on-demand.
“We’re excited to work with a prestigious device-manufacturer like Toshiba on delivering top-tier content to viewers in Europe,” commented Vonetize CEO Noam Josephides. “Partnering with Toshiba is a natural step for us, as we are committed to making great video content accessible through smart devices in global markets, and they are a leading supplier of Smart TVs worldwide.”
“Toshiba Europe is delighted to introduce Vonetize services in our Smart TVs,” noted Olivier Van Wynendaele, Head of TV Cloud Services at Toshiba. “Their variety of thematic apps offers our consumers access to content of high interest that you can’t find easily or so conveniently packaged on linear television. They are a perfect complement indeed.”
Toshiba Smart TV owners will now be able to enter their Smart TV, watch and enjoy content on seven of Vonetize’s global channels—the Bollywood HD Movie Channel, Baby Channel, ChefTV, Planet Knowledge, Total Music, celebrity news channel SCOOP! and Latin telenovela channel Corazón. The new Toshiba collaboration compliments already existing worldwide deals Vonetize has with other global device manufacturers, ISPs, and mobile providers.
