MYTF1 Max contains 5,000 hours of content, including 250 programmes and 8,000 episodes. All genres of cinema are covered, with recent box-office hits for each. The Dotscreen app is available in the Samsung and LG TV app stores. Other TV brands are to be announced soon.
Secondly, Belgian public broadcaster RTBF has announced the relaunch of its Auvio App, serving over 4 million customers, with a streamlined UI. Navigating content with more straightforward access to genres and new features is even easier. Personalisation is also improved with a more prominent MyAuvio section where users can see all their ongoing viewing. Parental control is enhanced with the possibility to lock the App in the kids’ area. Auvio, already available on iOS, Android, Airplay, Chromecast, and Web, was also made available on Samsung connected TVs.
“Dotscreen is proud to have developed OTT applications for two leading audiovisual groups in their respective markets: TF1 and RTBF. The launch of MyTF1Mex in France on connected TVs (Samsung, LG…) was completed in record time thanks to the close collaboration between our two companies. In Belgium, RTBF has entrusted us, in partnership with Red Bee Media, with the development and evolutive maintenance of all its websites and multiscreen apps for several years. The development and day-to-day technical management of streaming video sites and apps are not part of TV channels’ or operators’ core business,” said Stanislas Leridon and Pascal-Hippolyte Besson, co-founders of Dotscreen.
