Dotscreen runs app upgrades for TF1 and RTBF

French multiscreen UI specialist Dotscreen has announced the deployment of two significant upgrades for its European multiscreen UI clients.

The MYTF1 Max App developed by Dotscreen has launched on Samsung and LG Smart TVs in the French Market.

“The launch of MyTF1Mex in France on connected TVs was completed in record time thanks to the close collaboration between our two companies. In Belgium, RTBF has entrusted us, in partnership with Red Bee Media, with the development and evolutive maintenance of all its websites and multiscreen apps for several years,” said Stanislas Leridon and Pascal-Hippolyte Besson, co-founders of Dotscreen in a joint statement. “The development and day-to-day technical management of streaming video sites and apps are not part of TV channels’ or operators’ core business.”

Users can subscribe tp MYTF1 from the smart TV’s app store. They’ll find TF1 Group’s family of live TV channels, thousands of hours of replay content, previews, and MYTF1’s AVOD offering.

MYTF1 Max contains a rich and premium catalogue with 5,000 hours of content, including 250 programs and 8,000 episodes. All genres of premium cinema are covered, with recent box-office hits for each. The Dotscreen app is available in the Samsung and LG TV app stores. Other TV brands are to be announced soon.

Meanwhile, the Belgian public broadcaster RTBF has relaunched its Auvio App, serving over 4 million customers, with a streamlined UI.

There has been an improvement to the navigation of the app, for example, the number of available episodes is now directly visible in the description of any series. Personalisation has also been given an upgrade with a more prominent MyAuvio section where users can see all their ongoing viewing. Parental controls have been enhanced with the ability to lock the App in the kids’ area. Auvio, already available on iOS, Android, Airplay, Chromecast, and Web, was also made available on Samsung connected TVs.
