With that launch, coming just ahead of the Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, Nuvyyo adds another major OS for smart TVs, expanding on earlier support for Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, and LG Electronics’ webOS.

The new app for Tizen-powered TVs (starting with Samsung 2015 model years) provides access to the Tablo’s content discovery platform, as well as live playback, and DVR functions via an interface that’s tailored for big screen TVs and works with the TV’s remote control.
