Reading, Berkshire, United Kingdom, 2012/10/01 - British TV brand LINSAR and Antix are collaborating to deploy quality, casual to premium games from low cost connected LINSAR TVs upwards. Some games will be preloaded and all will be able to access the LINSAR and Antix Game Store.
British TV brand, LINSAR, is building a consumer service based around increasing support for rich media. A key part of that strategy and development is the inclusion of its game service, provided by Antix Labs. The high quality, casual to premium games will be supported from low cost connected TVs upwards. Some TVs will be purchased with games preloaded and all will be able to access the LINSAR and Antix Game Store.
Antix offers second screen support so that Antix-enabled phones and tablets can be used for easier payment and greater levels of interaction. For example, consumers can interact using their phones and tablets with their televisions, challenge and play a game on the LINSAR TV whether in the same room and not requiring use of the broadband network or over the network if their opponent is in a remote location.
Terry Reed, Owner and Director of LINSAR said,“Antix meets consumers’ expectations for the next generation of game services and fulfils our need to be offering the very best media to our customers.”
Francis Charig, Chief Executive of Antix stated,“LINSAR has established a reputation both under its own brand and working with some of the major retail channels in the UK, for high quality televisions and associated service, so Antix will benefit from our close collaboration. Antix is delighted to see how LINSAR’s TVs so manifestly utilize the power of the Antix platform.”
Barry Kick, also owner and Director of LINSAR commented,“The TV is the hub of the connected home and we’re addressing this with sophisticated but easy to use services across the main areas of customer need, Antix being selected by us as the best in class gaming service.”
