Altech has already deployed the Opera Devices SDK and the Opera hybrid TV software in Europe and will also now extend these to Australia.
Altech will offer audiences hundreds of HTML5 apps via the Opera TV Store for connected TVs and set-top boxes. The store, which features video on demand, sports, music, games, social media and news, will subsequently be rolled out to Altech boxes in other markets.
Altech will also launch the Opera hybrid TV option on its Australian set-top boxes to support the HbbTV standard, recently deployed in Australia.
“Integrating Opera’s TV web services is key in differentiating our product for viewers, by adding new functionality and entertainment services,” said Russell Futter, Managing Director APAC, Altech. “It is important for Altech to work with an established browser vendor who provides support for premium content and the rapidly evolving standards in the interactive TV space.”
