Wednesday 15 September 2021 | 14:21 CET | News
Telefonica has teamed up with Rakuten to further expand the range of TV applications ('Living Apps') available via the Movistar+ 4K TV set-top-box. The Rakuten Living App enables Movistar Fusion customers in over 1.4 million homes to discover a variety of live events and leisure experiences in various cities at a glance directly on their TVs. They will be able to browse and buy tickets for events not only in Spanish cities like Madrid, Malaga or Barcelona, but across major European cities including London, Berlin and more, said the partners.
