Telstra Selects Kannuu
Jan 14, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Kannuu, a provider of search and discovery solutions for the Smart TV environment, announced at the 2013 International CES that Telstra, a telecommunications and information services company in Australia, has selected Kannuu as the search and discovery service for its video on demand offering -- BigPond Movies -- on the Samsung Smart TV, the Samsung DVD player, the Samsung Smart Blu-ray and the Samsung Smart Home Theater.
According to a release, Kannuu search integrates with the BigPond Movies service on Samsung devices and enables consumers to find the movie or TV show they want using their standard remote control and the remote control directional arrows displayed on their Smart TV screen.
Kannuu CEO Todd Viegut said, "Kannuu provides an effective, effortless means to find the movie you want using the directional arrows on your standard TV remote control. No tortuous on-screen keyboard navigation, no switching your line of vision back and forth between the remote and the TV. Using just your thumb and looking only at the directional arrows and movie suggestions on your TV screen, Kannuu makes it a breeze to find a movie. Consumers try it once, and they're hooked. We are thrilled to be the search and discovery solution for BigPond Movies.
"Service providers face unrelenting pressure to reduce churn and increase ARPU. The proliferation of Smart TVs and the explosion of video content affords providers an unprecedented opportunity to gain ground on both fronts. Providing a superior video on demand and video streaming service is paramount, and these services all begin with search, which is where Kannuu excels. We help service providers open up the untapped value of Smart TV video content consumption by resolving the greatest obstacle -- the complete and utter lack of an appropriate or acceptable content search and discovery mechanism for the TV screen. We maintain that Kannuu is by far the best way to find content in a Smart TV world."
Kannuu provides search and discovery solutions.
