TCL next-gen smart TVs to ship with Cineverse streaming services
Cineverse (formerly Cinedigm) is a free streaming platform with an estimated content portfolio of 12,000 TV episodes and movies (in the US), which may exceed that of other similar services like Netflix in some markets - with just 1 potential catch: it drops ad breaks in the course of streaming.
Its app is compatible with a range of platforms, iPadOS, tvOS and webOS included - now, it is headed to the next generation of TCL TVs as well, possibly as a replacement for Roku or perhaps even Google TV in some models.
The "top 2 best-selling TV brand in the US" has announced a new partnership with Cineverse intended to result in support for content from the latter's brands (which include NHL and The Elvis Presley Channel) on big screens from the former out of the box.
Those who purchase these upcoming displays may also encounter a content aggregator (sort of like the Google TV app) from Cineverse for even more, probably also ad-supported, streaming options. Both new services come courtesy of the streaming distributor's own "all-in-one" video-on-demand delivery platform Matchpoint.
