NetRange – an ACCESS-owned provider of white-labelled, turnkey Smart TV and OTT ecosystems – has integrated the updated streaming app from Globoplay (a Brazilian media group and service provider) into NetRange Portal. NetRange says the move will expand Globoplay’s content reach throughout Brazil on Smart TV and connected devices.
NetRange Portal allows service providers to create one app that runs smoothly across every browser chip-set on Linux as well as on Android Operating Systems. The company says it offers the flexibility for clients to switch to new hardware or new technical components, without having to switch or modify the NetRange portal.
The Brazilian streaming service includes content from TV Globo (the largest Brazilian and Latin American TV network) and also offers channels such as Globo News, Sportv 1 Sportv 2 and Sportv 3, Universal TV, Studio Universal, SYFY and Canal Brasil and Futura. Users can also enjoy popular series such as Desalma and Departure and watch matches in the Brazilian football league Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A and B.
NetRange says its portals offers the simplest route to make apps available on Smart and connected TV. In addition to conducting integration work with operators, the company performs all the certification and testing procedures with Smart TV manufacturers, SoC vendors and content brands. It also provides continuous portal development and maintenance.
Michi Uemetsu, CTO, ACCESS CO., LTD, says: “LATAM is an incredibly important content region for NetRange. The relationship with Globoplay is a win-win for both companies. By enabling Smart TVs and connected devices to access Globoplay’s leading content, we strengthen our relationships with the leading TV manufacturers for the region, which in turn enables Globoplay to maximise its reach in Brazil.
“Globoplay shares our commitment to providing viewers with exceptional content combined with a premium user experience: with the latest NetRange Portal we enable Globoplay to provide smarter and better vídeo to TVs and all connected devices throughout Brazil.”
