Norwegian TV platform RiksTV has launched its streaming services on Samsung Smart TVs.
The apps are available on a range of Samsung Tizen models and have been developed by Norigin Media, using its TV App Framework.
RiksTV has moved from being solely a DTT provider to combine linear TV channels with on-demand movies, series and kids’ content and also offers a parallel over the top (OTT) solution, Strim, to users in Norway.
RiksTV and Strim are already available on PCs, mobile, tablet, Apple TV and Chromecast, and with this new launch, consumers will gain access via a dedicated app on a range of Samsung Tizen devices.
“We are glad to launch RiksTV’s and Strim’s services on Smart TVs. We are expanding our reach on new devices to enable the best possible experience to consumers in Norway. We are happy to expand our collaboration with Norigin Media, our trusted partner for building these apps.” says Jérôme Franck-Sætervoll, CEO, RiksTV.
“It’s great to see RiksTV take such large strides in providing the best of TV streaming services and Norigin is happy to collaborate with the very creative teams from RiksTV,” added Ajey Anand, CEO of Norigin Media.
The Smart TV Apps are built using Norigin Media’s TV App Framework and development services. Based on React, the TV Apps support all key manufacturers of Smart TVs and consoles, including Samsung, LG, Philips, Sony and PlayStation.
