Riivi, an OTT streaming service provider in Latin America, has chosen Norigin Media to provide smart TV app testing and validation ahead of its expansion to connected TV devices.

The on-demand TV streaming service provider offers a catalogue of over 200 titles from the biggest Latin production companies, including Fabula, Andrea Films, Shoreline, Ceneca and others.


Norigin will provide smart TV app testing and validation

Riivi is the first Latin-American ad-based (AVOD) platform that offers free movies, documentaries and series in the region. With ambitious plans to launch in multiple countries, it has already acquired a sizable audience who expects availability on many connected TV models. Norigin Media will help verify and fast-track the certification of the TV apps, including smart TV brands like Samsung Tizen and LG WebOS, among others.

Ilan Oliel, co-founder and CTO of Riivi, said: “As Latin America´s first free streaming service of local productions, we have grand ideas to create new TV experiences for our viewers. For us, that means having a top quality and smooth user experience, and hence we look forward to working closely with Norigin Media who have many years of developmental expertise on connected TV apps.”

Ajey Anand, CEO of Norigin Media, said: “We are extremely happy to announce our foray and new partnership in South America. It is a pleasure to work with the team at Riivi and we intend to help launch many such great streaming services in the region. Large screen TV models are fragmented and require a lot of specific attention, which we are confident to provide so that their consumers can be soon excited to stream Riivi on connected TVs.”
