May 2, 2017

JW Player, a leading digital and mobile video platform and player company with customers ranging from individual bloggers to Fortune 500 companies, is the newest Opera TV Snap partner. Together, Opera TV Snap and JW Player will enable JW Players’ over two million supported websites to package online video channels into ready-to-run TV apps.

“Opera TV Snap was designed with content creators in mind, to make it as fast and easy as possible to distribute content on Smart TV devices,” says Daniel Nordberg, VP Content at Opera TV. “Since its introduction, Opera TV Snap has spurred the creation of countless Smart TV apps around the world and has made millions of pieces of video content accessible on the biggest screen in the home—the TV. With the JW Player partnership, we can deliver even more outstanding content to consumers.”

“Partnering with Opera TV is a fantastic opportunity for JW Player customers, which include broadcasters, publishers and creators, to distribute their video content to millions of Smart TV devices across the globe,” says Dave Otten, CEO and co-founder at JW Player. “Now, within a few simple, intuitive steps, our customers can reach and monetise audiences they previously many not have been able to touch.”
