Multi-brand TV manufacturer, Vestel, has announced the launch of a new app collaboration that is set to bring streaming service Twitch to more Smart TVs across Europe. The app has been rolled out to all Vestel-manufactured Smart TV ranges, including those designed for many top brands, including Hitachi, JVC, Telefunken and Techwood.
With the app, users will be able to browse Twitch channels and watch live streams on any Vestel-manufactured Smart TVs that have been produced from June 2018 onwards.
The Twitch community will find it easy to navigate the app on their TVs, only having to click on the remote controls’ arrow buttons to find content. Those with Twitch accounts will be able to sign in on the TVs, so that they can keep up with the latest live broadcasts from the streamers they follow.
“We are extremely proud to be able to launch Twitch on our Smart TVs,” said Barış Altınkaya, Deputy General Manager of Marketing and Product Management, Vestel. “With this addition to our app line-up, we can connect everyone at home to an endless library of live entertainment that covers everything from games, sports, and travel to cooking and talk shows. Whatever their interests, thanks to this app collaboration, we can offer viewers more of the content they love, whilst also maximising their Twitch viewing experience with cutting-edge, big-screen TVs.”
Sajjad Rehman, Director of Business Development at Twitch, added: “Twitch is first and foremost a community which comes together to experience live entertainment, based on their passions and fuelled by interactivity. And there is no more important community than a family. Bringing Twitch into the living room through the Vestel TV’s will make it even easier for even more communities to come together for those never to be repeated moments which take on Twitch every second.”
