Apps on my TV? Yes, you heard correctly: web-enabled TV applications are
no longer the stuff of sci-fi films. At IBC 2011, Opera Software pulls
out of its hat the all new Opera TV Store, a simple solution for
developers to build HTML5 apps for connected TVs and devices. OEMs, on
the other hand, can take advantage of these ready-made apps and offer
them to their customers in an instant.
"Apps are a new must-have on TVs,” said Frode Hernes, VP Products, TV and Connected Devices, Opera Software. “With the Opera TV Store, developers can easily build cool and useful apps for millions of TV viewers. And, yet again, Opera takes these apps across devices, bringing games, news, video and audio apps to TVs, set-top boxes and Blu-ray players."

Opera also presents the Opera TV Emulator, a tool that allows developers do all the nips and tucks needed to build various TV apps without leaving their computers, and without investing in expensive bells and whistles needed for TV development.
The Opera TV Emulator rocks the following innovative features:
"Developing applications for TVs could not be easier," said Andreas Bovens, Group Leader, Development Relations, Opera Software. "Opera TV Emulator offers a complete package to develop, debug and deploy TV applications right from your PC."
