Yahoo! Connected TV expands across Europe

Bookmark and Share

Yahoo! and Samsung are expanding their Yahoo! Connected TV service to 26 more European countries, making it available to 135 countries around the world.

Yahoo! Connected TV brings on-demand Internet content to the television.

Users press their remote to open a dock, from where they can add widgets from Yahoo! and other Internet sites, allowing them to watch shows, shop, play games, and interact with friends on sites such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter while watching television.

The service is available on TVs with the Yahoo logo from Samsung and other major manufactures, or via Yahoo connected TV devices that work with an existing TV.

In order to further cement the partnership between Samsung and Yahoo!, Samsung is planning to add a fullscreen Yahoo! user interface to its own Internet TV service.

Rich Riley, senior vice president and managing director Yahoo! EMEA said: “Yahoo! connects consumers to the information and services they love regardless of the device.

“We’re delivering the right Internet-connected TV experience across Europe and opening up a new and robust channel to publishers and developers looking to bring their services into millions of living rooms.”
