Then, viewers will become able to easily enjoy “AbemaTV” also with the 4K TV “VIERA” produced by Panasonic Corporation without a smartphone or the like. For models released in 2017 and 2018, it will become possible to watch “AbemaTV” by starting up the “AbemaTV” app from the application list of a TVwithin the year. With models to be released in January 2019 or later, it will be possible to start up the “AbemaTV” app just by pushing the “AbemaTV” button on a remote controller, and enjoy “AbemaTV” like conventional TV programs.
The user interface for watching “AbemaTV” with a TV set was fully renewed in September 2018, and its design has been changed for boosting operability and its functions have been improved by adding the function to check comments while watching AbemaTV with a TV set, so that viewers can enjoy TV in a manner unique to “AbemaTV.” “AbemaTV” will continue expanding features within and outside the service to provide a more accessible and convenient viewing experience.
