Swiss cable operator Sunrise has made its OTT service Sunrise TV neo available as an app on Samsung smart TVs.
For the first time, viewers can now use the service directly through their TV set without a set-top box; previously, this only worked via the Apple TV box.
The app runs on the Huawei Envision video platform and offers over 230 TV channels, including more than 110 channels in HD quality as well as the Ultra HD channels Insight UHD, UHD 1 and Fashion TV UHD. Part of the line-up is also time-shifted TV streaming, cloud storage for up to 500 hours of recordings, seven days of ComeBack TV and a download function on mobile devices.
The Sunrise TV neo app can be used on up to six devices simultaneously, for example smartphones, tablets, PCs, Apple TV or Samsung smart TV.
