Ioko signs Samsung TV app development deal

Digital media systems integrator ioko has announced that it is now certified to develop applications for Samsung’s range of internet-connected TVs.

The company, which operates Arqiva’s online on-demand service SeeSaw, already has experience of Samsung’s Internet@TV connected sets, having developed the H.264 video player for LOVEFiLM’s direct-to-TV service, which launched in May.  “As we’ve seen with LOVEFiLM’s direct-to-TV service, there’s a growing appetite from consumers to access on-demand programming on their TVs and, with Samsung’s range of Internet@TV sets, the devices are available to meet this demand.  Ioko will help content providers capitalise on these emerging and lucrative routes to market,” said Fearghal Kelly, vice president of media solutions, ioko.
