Accedo, a Swedish provider of connected TV and IPTV applications, has formed a partnership with maxdome, the video-on-demand (VOD) service of German TV group ProSiebenSat.1, to develop next generation apps for multiple platforms.

The first official app developed by the partners will make maxdome's library of 45,000 video titles including movies, series, comedy shows, documentaries, music videos and children's programmes available on connected TV sets of the Panasonic Viera series. The app will be rolled out to the current series of the TV sets this month.

The two companies are also working together to develop next generation VOD apps for other platforms. They are expected to be deployed across a number of different devices in 2012.

"We are thrilled to be working with maxdome which is not only the largest VOD provider in Germany, but also a very innovative company with a clear vision of the future OTT market," said Michael Lantz, CEO of Accedo.
