At CES today, TCL Multimedia, the 4th largest LCD TV producer in the world, announced its new partnership with Frequency, a free service that allows consumers to watch online videos from Facebook, Twitter, and other news sources, through a personalized consumer video experience. Frequency organizes videos into video channels that are updated in real time and eliminates the need to visit multiple sites. TLC will pre-install Frequency on its new TCL iCE SCREEN, a 26″ Android-based smart TV, and its full line of smart TVs in various countries beginning Q1 of 2013.
“The combination of TCL’s innovative line of Smart TVs with Frequency’s personalized online video experience gives consumers more content choices and an integrated service offering that complements their existing programming options,” said Blair Harrison, CEO and founder of Frequency.
“Through our partnership with Frequency, we’re delivering a new and better way for consumers to experience online video from our Smart TVs,” said Stan Hu, Director of Global Business Strategy and Product Planning, LCD Business Unit of TCL Multimedia. “The tight integration of Frequency with our Smart Cloud TVs aligns with our strategy focusing on ‘integration, innovation and internationalization,’ and ultimately helps consumers get the most from the investment in TCL products.”
Frequency’s personal video service is currently available on the iPhone, iPad, Samsung Smart TVs and Blu-ray players, and is a 2012 Editor’s Choice in the Apple App Store. Read more.
