The programme is aligned with Opera TV’s latest HTML5 SDK, and consists of two parts – application certification and device certification.
“With OTT quickly becoming an important viewing choice for consumers, there’s no reason for the app development and launch process to be so cumbersome—there should be a clear path that everyone can understand, trust and follow,” said Opera TV CEO, Aneesh Rajaram.
“OTT video app developers should be able to build once and deploy HTML5-based applications that are compatible with all Opera TV devices. This increased efficiency and cost savings mark a significant step forward for the industry. We look forward to helping content providers, developers, OEMs and operators reach new levels of success.”
Opera TV is an HTML5 television ecosystem that the company claims is shipped on more than 40 million devices each year.
