Berlin, Germany – TP Vision announced today that its Philips Smart TV platform has been expanded further using cloud-based services including Cloud TV and Cloud Explorer. Cloud TV delivers hundreds of TV channels to Philips Smart TVs streamed via the cloud. Cloud Explorer allows users to view their videos and photos stored with established and trusted cloud-storage providers. The new cloud-enabled services are available via dedicated apps in many countries in Europe and in Russia as of now*. Cloud TV and Cloud Explorer are compatible with all Philips Smart TVs introduced to the market in 2012 and later.


Cloud TV overcomes the limitations of cable TV
Cloud TV takes TV to the next level by streaming hundreds of local, national, international and special interest channels over the internet (Over The Top or OTT) to Philips Smart TVs*. It provides a huge variety of premium and non-premium channels, most of which are freely available. The easy to use Cloud TV app on the Philips Smart TV home screen shows all available channels neatly arranged by genre and popularity and the channels are easily searchable.


Cloud Explorer facilitates content sharing
Cloud Explorer on Philips Smart TVs allows users to easily access photos, videos, and other content stored in the cloud. A dedicated app called Cloud Explorer displays all playable files stored in the personal cloud space sorted by type; videos, photos, and audio files are arranged in dedicated folders. The Cloud Explorer app on Philips Smart TVs let users sign in to their existing Dropbox account, or get a new account. The Cloud Explorer app allows simple, ‘single sign-on’ log in through the user’s TV account. Cloud Explorer is available as of today in all Philips Smart TV territories.
