Multi-screen cloud video software company Easel TV has made its OTT platform Suggested TV available on the fourth-generation Apple TV box and on Google Cast. The first use of these latest Suggested TV device players will be for the Curzon Home Cinema service.

Curzon Home Cinema Director Phil Mordecai said the company’s investment in the service continues and the launch of its new Curzon Home Cinema-branded Apple TV and Google Cast players were very important to its overall offering to its customers who want the big premium cinema experience at home. “We’ve had a lot of customer requests to provide players on these two platforms in particular and are delighted to launch them using Suggested TV,” he added.

“Easel TV’s product-based approach allows our clients a rapid route to launching services on supported devices,” noted Bill Scott, Easel TV COO. “New devices are continuously under development and all our clients benefit from our investment in these players.”

Further devices already supported by the Suggested TV service are the iPad, iPhone, Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon Fire TV, multiple smart TV sets, Virgin Media:TiVo and Freesat.

Easel TV recently announced the release of extensive marketing tools to its Suggested TV Engine, a comprehensive suite of management tools with a common interface for the complete end to end operation of the multi-screen cloud video service offered by Easel TV.
