Yahoo! and Samsung today announced an extended partnership to deliver Yahoo! Connected TV in 26 new countries across Europe, bringing Yahoo! Connected TV on Samsung TVs to 39 countries worldwide.
Together with Samsung's own Internet@TV service, Samsung's 2010 European
Internet-connected TVs will also feature a new full-screen Yahoo! user
interface. Today's news builds on the partnership that Yahoo! and Samsung
first announced in January 2009.
The Internet revolution is televised as consumers use Yahoo! Connected TV
to interact with Internet content and services. Consumers can access
video content on YouTube; view the latest headlines and videos on Sky News
and Bild News, view photos from Flickr; discover travel deals on Teletext
Holidays, get German football scores and updates on Bild Mein Klub; shop
on eBay; play games from PlayJam, create a personal channel of music
videos on Putpat, or catch up with friends on Twitter and Facebook, and
much more - all while watching TV.
The partnership with Samsung is the latest step in the global distribution
of Yahoo! Connected TV, which is currently in use in 135 countries.
