Bang & Olufsen has taken a leap forward with its smart TVs by adding the Opera Devices Software Development Kit.

The Opera software will appear in BeoPlay V1 and BeoVision 11 TVs. This will mean smart apps that are ready for HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, SVG and WebGL.

Initially Spotify, BBC iPlayer and YouTube will be ready to go. But with the Opera SDK on offer it should mean many more apps follow soon after.

The Opera SDK-powered BeoPlay V1 and BeoVision 11 TVs are now available worldwide.
