KTC, China’s foremost manufacturer of flat-panel display products, and NetRange, the leading global provider of Smart TV solutions, are joining forces. By integrating the NetRange Smart TV Portal, KTC devices will be giving access to a global content portfolio in over 60 different languages, including live channels, premium VoD and Catch Up TV, music, sport, news, games and many other services.

By offering these components, NetRange simplifies the integration effort, significantly reduces cost as well as the time-to-market as a one-stop solution provider for both content and technology.
