02-28 2015

Haier, the world’s number one Major Appliances brand for six consecutive years*, and one of the world's biggest manufacturers of consumer electronics including TVs, tablets, smartphones and PCs, have signed an agreement with FOXXUM, global leader in Smart TV solutions, to bring together state-of-the-art Smart TV technology, a wide range of international content offers and modern-design, high-quality televisions.

 

Just three months ahead of launch, the ultra-fast and highly intuitive FOXXUM Smart TV solution will now be available in multiple additional countries in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and the Middle East.

We anticipate a dynamic and successful co-operation, which will provide the ideal foundation for us to further develop our Smart TV strategy", said Christophe Chancenest, Sales & Marketing Director at Haier Europe.

 

"We are delighted to work with a highly successful brand such as Haier. This collaboration gives us more markets, more end user devices and more potential customers for our content partners. This is the path we need to take to defend our position as global leader in Smart TV solutions”, said Ronny Lutzi, CEO at FOXXUM.

 

The following three series of Haier Smart TVs are set to use the FOXXUM platform and will be available in a number of European markets from Q1 2015:

·         B7000U 4K series, with 42”, 50”, 55” and 65’’ models; pricing and availability vary by market.
