Brazilian ISP Terra to stream Olympics to smart TVs

Swedish TV app developer Accedo has won a commission to develop an Olympics app for Terra (part of Telefónica Group), a global digital media company and leading Internet provider in Latin America.

The app will enable Terra’s Smart TV customers in Brazil to follow the live action from London 2012 and share their experience in the most popular social networks through their connected TV set.

In addition to twenty channels of live TV, the app will also give consumers access to a wide-ranging catch-up TV service, enabling them to stay up-to-date with all of the latest action as well as allowing the users to gain access to real time information.

The Terra Olympics service, developed by Accedo, is available on Samsung, LG, and Philips Connected TVs.

It marks the first specific event application for Terra, which plans to develop other similar services for future events, such as the football World Cup which Brazil is hosting in 2014.
