SAN FRANCISCO, California – 05 January 2012 – AppCarousel today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Myriad Group AG (SIX: MYRN), the company powering billions of rich mobile social and web experiences on any connected device, to provide app merchandising and app store services integrated into Myriad’s Alien Vue solution for TV service providers.

Myriad Alien Vue, powered by Myriad Alien Dalvik technology, enables Internet access via TV allowing Android apps to run alongside existing television functions, in a unified user experience. It is a complete end‐to‐end solution that enables TV service providers to add apps to their existing managed service offerings in order to respond to new over‐the‐top content distribution services from Apple, Google and others.
The AppCarousel platform enables organizations to showcase the apps and content they care about to their audience, and also easily deliver and bill that content to their end‐users. AppCarousel is providing Myriad Alien Vue the app store and app showcasing platform that can be fully branded for service providers including app hosting, delivery and billing.

“AppCarousel provides not only the ability to showcase relevant apps and content to targeted audiences across multiple devices, but it also seamlessly integrates with Myriad Alien Vue to deliver Android apps directly to users on their TVs.” said Simon Wilkinson, Chief Executive Officer, Myriad Group.
“Alien Vue enables TV service providers and device manufacturers to offer a richer experience to their customers including consumption of Android apps and content,” said Terry Hughes, Managing Director, AppCarousel. “We are delighted to be partnering with Myriad to make app browsing and downloading a key part of that experience.”
