The M7 Smart TV App: enriching the TV experience via one single user interface

Shortlisted for the TV Connect 2018 Awards for most innovative in-home device

In order to ease and enhance the consumer TV experience, European pay TV provider M7 Group has developed a so-called Smart TV app. The app has already been successfully integrated in DIVEO, M7’s new hybrid TV platform for Germany and Skylink, M7’s leading pay TV platform for Czech Republic and Slovakia. Other M7 platforms in Europe to follow soon: Canal Digitaal (Netherlands), TV VLAANDEREN and TéléSAT (Belgium) and HD Austria (Austria). Moreover, the M7 Smart TV has been shortlisted for the TV Connect 2018 Industry Awards in the category “Most innovative in-home device”.

The M7 Smart TV App is turning today’s smart TV into a full-fledged, state-of-the art television experience, by merging the benefits of linear, OTT and interactive television into a single user-friendly interface without the need for a traditional set top box.

Hence, the M7 smart TV app provided TV consumers with easy access to hundreds of linear TV channels in HD/UHD picture quality, while interactive applications like restart, replay and cloud-recording allows them to watch their favorite programs at any time, any place and via any device.

While working as a ‘virtual settop box within the TV, the M7 smart app breaks down today’s technology barriers for consumers, allowing them to use one single, user-friendly interface and only one remote control to enjoy a full and interactive TV experience, while seamlessly switching from watching both linear and non-linear content via the big screen to mobile devices – or vice versa.

Various leading TV vendors have already expressed to be keen to work with M7 to have the smart TV app integrated as standard feature in all new generation smart TV’s. First contracts were concluded with market leading TV manufacturers. Related announcements are expected shortly.
