Accedo Powers Cinépolis KLIC – First ROKU local OTT service app in Latin America

Mexico City, Mexico, 14th October 2015 –
Accedo, the global market leader in TV application solutions, has developed the first ROKU local OTT service app for the Latin American market, Cinépolis KLIC.

Cinépolis KLIC, provided by Latin America’s biggest Cineplex chain and the 4th biggest in the world, is available across Mexico. The VOD service, developed by Accedo launched earlier this year across numerous other platforms, including iOS, Android, Sony Bravia, Play Station, LG and Samsung Smart TV devices. This latest version for Roku comes just days after the first ROKU boxes became available in Mexico.

Cinépolis Klic has been developed using Accedo’s state of the art application solution, Accedo VIA™, which enables the quick and efficient launch of full-featured multiscreen services across multiple connected platforms. Being managed by Accedo AppGrid™, means that Cinépolis KLIC can monitor the application across platforms and configure dynamic app behavior according to consumer consumption, from within an easy-to-use web interface.

“In a rapidly changing media environment, we were keen to extend our engagement with our audiences across Mexico,” commented Marco de la Cruz, Cinépolis KLIC Deputy Director. “Accedo’s wealth of experience developing multiscreen applications and services helped us get an extremely compelling service”

“The way in which content is being consumed is rapidly changing,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “This service is an extremely innovative offering from a cinema chain, and gives Cinépolis KLIC audiences across Mexico another way to engage with its compelling content.”

“Mexico is leading the way in Latin America for innovation in OTT and multiscreen services” commented Jerónimo Macanás, Vice-President LatAm and Southern Europe, Accedo. “Cinépolis KLIC is amongst the companies in Mexico leading the new multi-device premium content distribution era.”
