Smart TV apps

Over-the-top (OTT) services have been on the rise for some time. Players like Netflix and Amazon have launched their services, and broadcasters have responded by launching their own proprietary services. These services are used in PCs, laptops, mobile terminals, tablets and of course in smart televisions. In fact, smart TV is the most used medium for weekly consumption of OTT services.

Sofia Digital offers the easiest way to make sure your brand is present in smart TVs. A tailored OTT application makes your content and services just a button away. We can create and deliver your applications to all the main smart TV application stores. Our approach is to use well-known technologies, such as HTML5 and JavaScript, combined with our in-house application libraries and templates. This reduces device dependency and enables cost efficient development and maintenance for the customer. We support all the major smart TV application stores and manufacturers, such as Samsung, LG, Sony, Philips and Panasonic. We can also handle the acceptance process for each store as part of our service.

From the business perspective, it is important to select a partner with whom it is possible to pivot the earning strategies of the developed platform. There are many ways of monetizing an OTT platform, and the initial assumption of a mixed revenue model might not be the best one. Once you work with Sofia Digital, you will notice that further development of the platform and the revenue models is quick, easy and cost efficient.
