They will join the hundreds of apps in the Opera TV Store, spanning video, music, games, social media, news and utilities.
Major brand to have already used Opera TV Snap include one of Europe’s fastest growing online music channels The Mahogany Sessions, French daily newspaper Le Figaro and environment and the green technology channel Green.TV.
The Opera TV Store application platform has already shipped on tens of millions of devices, including Smart TVs and Blu-ray Disc players from Sony and TCL, and is coming soon to TiVo, Hisense and Konka devices.
Commenting on the progress to date, Daniel Nordberg, director of business development for TV & Devices at Opera Software, said: “The rapid surge in app submissions to the Opera TV Store with Opera TV Snap shows just how keen brands and video owners are to share their content with massive new audiences worldwide.
“There is no easier way than Opera TV Snap to repurpose online video for TV, bringing that content to the largest screen in the house. It truly is a snap.”
