Brands, broadcasters and content owners can now extend their existing online video channels and video content catalogues to LG Smart TVs at no extra cost, with Opera TV Snap, a toolkit that generates Smart TV channels in minutes. LG Smart TV will launch selected channels from Opera TV’s portfolio in eight markets: the UnK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, USA, Mexico and Brazil.
The first phase of the Opera TV launch will include up to 18 channels in each country, with thousands of videos ranging from movies and TV series, music, sports, news, lifestyle, and nature and travel. More channels will be added periodically.
“With the fast-changing landscape of online video consumption and distribution, content owners are keen to reach viewers on all screens, especially the largest screen in the home. At Opera TV, we’ve designed innovative products that enable them achieve this goal. Our partnership with LG represents a significant milestone in our journey to enable exciting living room experiences for end consumers,” says Aneesh Rajaram, SVP at Opera Software.
