Xumo offers 60 free OTT channels, including Tastemade, Outside TV, FailArmy, Bloomberg Politics and more, a designated input selection for the Xumo platform, and last channel experience technology enabling Xumo viewers to pick up where they left off with Xumo content the next time they turn on their Hisense smart TV.
Hisense joins LG, Vizio, Funai Brands Magnavox, Sanyo and Philips, and virtually every other major TV manufacturer in offering Xumo free to owners (in the US) of their smart TVs.
“Xumo’s native integration with Hisense and Sharp smart TVs as a virtual input is the first of its kind,” said Colin Petrie-Norris, CEO of Xumo.
“This strategic partnership with one of the fastest-growing smart TV manufacturers in the world is particularly exciting to us as we continue to provide users increasingly easy access to free, quality streaming content. Delivering a truly hassle-free and digital experience where the user can lean back and enjoy any one of our digital channels is baked into our DNA and we are pleased to have partnered with a quickly expanding and innovative brand in Hisense to bring it to market at this year’s CES.”
“Consumers enjoy Hisense televisions because they maintain a seamless user experience,” said Mark Viken, VP of marketing, Hisense Americas.
“Our agreement with Xumo means that our consumers have more access to a more diverse array of content than ever before.”
Xumo has built a list of over 70 content partners with both live and on-demand options available on Xumo’s various platform across smart TVs, iOS and Android devices and Roku.
