TCL recently announced that Middle East streaming video service StarzPlay’s app is now offered in all TCL smart TVs supported by Android. TCL is a global television manufacturer and a leading consumer electronics brand.
StarzPlay will be preloaded of TCL TVs supported by Android so that everyone can enjoy the lastest movies and TV shows. Furthermore, subscribers will be able to watch their programs in full HD and 4K content via the smart TVs.
The CEO of Eros Group, authorized distributors for TCL in the UAE, Niranjan Gidwani, stated “We are thrilled to be having a long-standing relationship with a brand like TCL, one of the top three global TV manufacturers, which grows stronger year on year. We are excited for this announcement as StarzPlay has grown rapidly over the years and it definitely stands out with its huge library of Arabic content which is much desired in the Middle East.”
StarzPlay is a regional leader in subscription video on demand (SVOD) service streaming content to 19 countries across the Middle East and North Africa, with an array of Hollywood movies, TV shows, documentaries, kid’s entertainment in addition to dedicated Arabic and Bollywood content.
Collaborations with device manufacturers are considered as an important distribution channel in the increasingly competitive regional SVOD market. StarzPlay had earlier this year made a similar deal to make their service accessible to Samsung TV buyers.
