SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – December 21, 2015 – Today Vonetize, a global VOD service provider, inaugurated its new partnership with global electronics leader Samsung by launching Vonetize’s leading premium content service, SmartVOD, on Samsung devices in Brazil. In the coming months, Vonetize will roll out the offering with Samsung to countries across the region, giving millions of Latin American consumers the highest quality video content directly on their smart TVs and mobile devices.
Vonetize provides high-quality VOD content to consumers in emerging global markets with its innovative technology and partnerships with the top content studios, including Disney, Warner Brothers, Fox, Universal, Sony Pictures, Miramax, and MGM. The company’s SmartVOD service features newly-released and multi-category premium Hollywood films and TV series, and is already available in over 35 countries worldwide.
