Opera brings the world of apps to Sony TVs in Mexico

Opera Software today announced that the Opera TV Store is now being shipped on Sony’s connected Blu-ray players and Home Theater Systems with Blu-Ray Player throughout Mexico, giving consumers a smooth TV navigation experience and putting a variety of apps at their fingertips.

The HTML5-powered Opera TV Store is a complete app store that offers users a wide selection of high-quality and easy-to-navigate web apps. Combine that with the renowned quality and sharpness of Sony‘s Blu-ray players and Home Theatre Systems with Blu-Ray Player and you get a world of relevant content with an unsurpassable TV-viewing experience.

Apart from carrying popular apps such as 25 Square Puzzle, Bubbles, Sudoku, Solitaire and Backgammon, the Opera TV Store in Mexico will enable seamless interaction between the handset and the devices that will allow the user to seize the full potential of the application.

For developers, this collaboration between Opera and Sony gives a great opportunity to reach out to the millions of Sony Blu-ray, Home Theater Systems with Blu-Ray Player and Opera TV Store users with their unique content and apps. The ability to display ads will enable publishers and content providers to inject pre-roll ads and monetize their apps. Developers will also find it very easy to develop apps with Opera’s TV Emulator.
