From David Del Valle in Madrid
Spain’s Telefonica has entered into a partnership with Samsung to extend its Movistar+ app to future Samsung smart TV models that enables subscribers to watch Movistar pay-TV channels without a STB.
Currently, Movistar + offer is available on selected 2014 and 2015 Samsung smart TVs through the OTT app. With the agreement both companies will integrate the app into more models to allow subscribers to have access to the whole Movistar+ offer and VoD services.
With the service, subscribers do not need an STB and can also use the Samsung TV remote to control multiple applications and services, thanks to the Samsung Smart Hub and Movistar+ app.
