Luxembourg, 7 May 2018 – M7 Group, one of Europe’s leading pay-TV providers, operating fully hybrid television platforms across seven European markets and serving over three million TV homes, is proud to announce that the M7 Smart TV app has been nominated for the TV Connect 2018 Industry Awards in the category “Most innovative in-home device”. The TV Connect Award Ceremony will take place on 9 May at The Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London.
The M7 Smart TV App is turning today’s smart TV into a full-fledged, state-of-the art television experience, by merging the benefits of linear, OTT and interactive television into a single user-friendly interface without the need for a traditional set top box.
Via one single app, TV consumers now have the chance to enjoy a complete and enriched TV experience, by having access to hundreds of linear TV channels in superb HD/UHD picture quality, while interactive applications like restart, replay and cloud-recording allow them to watch their favorite programs at any time, any place and via any device.
While working as a virtual set top box within the TV set, the M7 smart app breaks down today’s technology barriers for consumers, allowing them to use one single, user-friendly interface and only one remote control to enjoy a full and interactive TV experience, while seamlessly switching from watching both linear and non-linear content via the big screen to mobile devices – or vice versa.
The M7 Smart TV app has already been successfully integrated in DIVEO, M7’s new hybrid TV platform for Germany and Skylink, M7’s leading pay TV platform for Czech Republic and Slovakia. Other M7 platforms in Europe are to follow soon: Canal Digitaal (Netherlands), TV VLAANDEREN and TéléSAT (Belgium) and HD Austria (Austria).
Furthermore, various leading TV manufacturers have expressed their eagerness to team-up with M7 for the integration of the M7 smart TV app in all their new generation smart TV’s. First contracts are already concluded and related announcements are expected shortly.
