Munich, 19 December 2013 –
Accedo, the global market leader in TV application solutions, today announced that its TV Everywhere solution is powering Sky Deutschland’s Snap by Sky service for Samsung Smart TVs.

Snap is the new Sky online media library – which offers thousands of titles on demand from the Sky Collection. Snap includes complete season box-sets of award-winning series, the biggest hits from the HBO library, the greatest movies of the last decades and an incredible selection of children’s programmes, including exclusive highlights from the world of Disney. Titles are available both in German and the original language.

The Connected TV service is powered by Accedo TV Everywhere, which is a proven multi-platform TV application solution, that provides a comprehensive set of reference TV applications encompassing all types of TV viewing on multiple devices.

The service is also supported by Accedo AppGrid™, a cloud-based solution, which includes an intuitive management User Interface, to manage, configure and analyze the application.
