Opera has partnered with Dailymotion to launch new software that turns your Dailymotion video channel into a Smart TV application.
Opera TV Snap can create a smart TV app in less than a minute, according to the company.
The software enables the user to turn their online video channel on Dailymotion into an HTML5-based app, which can then be submitted for moderation. Successfully submitted channels will then appear on the Opera TV Store for others to install on their smart TVs.
The service is free and the users can even make money off the back of their new channel, making it useful for individuals and companies. To create an app, users can visit opera.com/tvsnap, fill out a description of the channel, and click submit.
“Video has proven to be the most popular app category for Smart TV audiences, and it’s no wonder, as larger TV screens can bring viewers up close and personal with their favorite online content,” said Aneesh Rajaram, Senior Vice-President for TV & Devices, Opera Software.
“Opera TV Snap will help brands and content owners effortlessly reach new audiences, while bringing a greater choice of popular video to viewers. I can’t wait to watch the latest highlights from my favorite sports teams and music artists directly on my Smart TV”.
It has already launched internationally on smart TVs and Blu-ray Disc players from Sony and TCL, and has also been selected by Humax, Hisense and MediaTek.
