Cinedigm’s relaunch of its AVOD service Viewster is available worldwide via global television manufacturer Philips, the content supplier announced.
The Viewster app was developed using Cinedigm’s proprietary Matchpoint Blueprint application development platform.
The partnership establishes Cinedigm’s entry into the international marketplace. In addition to the ZEASN-supported Philips televisions, Cinedigm’s roster of digital networks have distribution across top-tier TV manufacturers, including Samsung, Vizio, Hisense, and LG, among others.
“Cooperation with ZEASN to relaunch the Viewster App is a meaningful milestone, and it also presents Cinedigm with an incredible opportunity to distribute our unique programming offerings to one of the major television manufacturers in the world,” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s SVP of product and technology, in a statement. “Philips’ wide distribution of their television hardware across major international territories will be integral to our strategy as we work to establish a global footprint, introducing both our digital networks as well as our proprietary Matchpoint Blueprint platform to new markets on one of the world’s leading television brands.”
Jason He, CEO of ZEASN, said in a statement, “We are excited that the Viewster App has been successfully relaunched with the help of ZEASN’s services. ZEASN has been committed to providing the best smart home services for Internet users around the world. The Viewster App newly built by Cinedigm will bring a better user experience to Philips’ smart TV users and will help ZEASN to build a more complete Whale Ecosystem in the smart home industry.”
