As part of a multi-year partnership, Hisense Australia has collaborated with the NRL to integrate the exclusive NRL TV App across its television range.
From June onwards, customers with Hisense TVs powered by VIDAA U3, VIDAA U4 and VIDAA U5 operating systems will have access to the app, allowing them to enjoy full match replays and highlights on-demand.
That means if you have a Hisense TV running Android TV or an older version of VIDAA operating system eg 2.5 then you won’t get access to this new NRL app.
Hisense customers with relatively recent model Vidaa U running TV’s can also access Kayo, Stan Sport and NBA League Pass.
Hisense customers who are NRL fans will be able to immerse themselves in classic match replays and current season highlights, a number of NRL live-stream programs including Inside the NRL, Game Plan and NRL Teams via the App, as well as access to NRL State of Origin archives and documentaries.
Hisense Australia’s research and development team worked closely with NRL’s app developers to make the integration a reality as part the company’s major three-year sponsorship of the NRL, which includes being an Official Partner of the NRL Telstra Premiership and naming rights sponsor of Thursday Night Football.
Andre Iannuzzi, Head of Marketing at Hisense Australia, said:
“At Hisense we are driven to provide Australians the best in home entertainment, which means we are constantly looking at how we can expand our content offering – particularly when it comes to sports. Our insights tell us that our customers highly value access to sports content from the comfort of their own home and this is something we’ve seen increase exponentially over the last 12 months”.
“The integration of the NRL TV App across our product range is an exciting development for our sports-loving customer base and significantly enhances our on-demand sport offering by ensuring there is something for everyone – from basketball lovers and passionate NRL supporters, to the sporting fanatic all-rounder with Kayo.”
“When fans aren’t able to make the game in-person, we’re pleased to provide them with a front row seat from their own living room.”
Hisense announced its content partnership with Kayo, Australia’s leading sports streaming platform, earlier this year. Its roll-out is now complete with the app accessible via Hisense TVs equipped with VIDAA U3 and VIDAA U4 operating systems. It will also be available on Hisense’s 2021 TVs, powered by the new VIDAA U5, which will be available for sale in coming months.
In addition, basketball fans will also be glad to learn that VIDAA has embarked on a global, multi-year partnership with the NBA, giving owners of VIDAA U4 & U5 Hisense TV’s access to hundreds of live and on-demand NBA games in high-definition via the subscription NBA League Pass.
