RiksTV launches Smart TV Apps with Norigin Media
The streaming services branded RiksTV and Strim are already available on PCs, mobile, tablet, Apple TV and Chromecast, and with this launch, consumers will gain access via a dedicated app on a range of Samsung Tizen devices. Samsung Smart TV has a large market share in the Nordics, making it a strategic choice for any Pay TV Operator or Broadcaster.
The Smart TV Apps are built using Norigin Media’s TV App Framework and development services. Based on React, the TV Apps support all key manufacturers of Smart TVs and consoles, including Samsung, LG, Philips, Sony and PlayStation.
“We are glad to launch RiksTV’s and Strim’s services on Smart TVs. We are expanding our reach on new devices to enable the best possible experience to consumers in Norway. We are happy to expand our collaboration with Norigin Media, our trusted partner for building these apps.” says Jérôme Franck-Sætervoll, CEO of RiksTV.
“It’s great to see RiksTV take such large strides in providing the best of TV streaming services and Norigin is happy to collaborate with the very creative teams from RiksTV,” says Ajey Anand, CEO of Norigin Media.
