Starting from today (January 2), owners of Samsung Blu-ray player Series 5 and Samsung Home Theater System Series 5, as well as some of Samsung’s Series 4 models, will have more choices of online and streaming entertainment for their TV screens through hundreds of TV apps.

At the same time, app and content owners will have access to a huge new audience.

Commenting on the development, Aneesh Rajaram, SVP for TV & Devices, Opera Software, said:
“The Opera TV Store unleashes the full potential of online video content, the most popular consumption category on Blu-ray players and various other media player devices.

“With Samsung’s Blu-ray player on board, we significantly increase the reach we bring to our content partners and brands that are looking to engage with millions of consumers, while also providing those consumers with the best and widest choice in web content.”
