Both companies, Arcelik A.S. and DivX have entered into a strategic partnership that allows the television manufacturer to offer certified DivX TVs in Europe. Under the agreement Arcelik’s new range of Beko, Arcelik and Grundig-branded DivX Plus HD certified TVs should be available in stores across Europe. The certification of the television will give users the peace of mind and confidence knowing that their TV will play DivX files without problems.

A DivX Plus HD certified device will playback all previous versions of DivX Plus HD video files with the .mkv file extension and AAC audio created with third party tools. Owners of the new range of DivX Plus HD Certified televisions are guarantee to support the majority of high quality Internet video on their televisions.

“As the first DivX Plus HD in digital TVs in Europe, we are excited to bring DivX’s revolutionary new MKV HD video playback technology to our award-winning TVs.  The DivX brand is very well known throughout Europe, and adding DivX Plus HD Certification will help us enhance our home theatre experience for our customers,” said Director of Brand Management, Grundig Intermedia GmbH, Christian Stuck.
