UMC Slovakia and Foxxum have signed a five years exclusive contract to bring smart TV functions to Sharp TVs.

UMC is the European Sharp license holder and as a result of the deal, Foxxum will integrate its high smart TV solution into all newly developed connected Sharp TV series sold in Europe.

Users will gain access to a set of smart TV functions as well as an international content portfolio and local content in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Middle East and Asia.
