Ikea’s Uppleva TV, which is going on sale in select stores in Europe next month, will feature apps for some of the biggest video sites: Uppleva users will be able to access videos from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion and elsewhere, according to an Ikea spokesperson. All in all, it will feature around 20 apps per country.
Some of the other services available on the device will include QTom, a German Vevo competitor and TuneIn radio. Apps will also be available to facilitate music playback, games, VOD and catch-up video playback. Uppleva TVs will also come with an open Web browser, which reportedly is Opera for TV.
