BYTON Reveals Content Partners for the M-Byte 48-inch Display

BYTON announced, prior to CES 2020, their partners who will be featured on the massive 48-inch screen found in the M-Byte production car.

  • Byton presented their new content providers;
  • The partners go from ViacomCBS to AccuWeather;
  • Everything will be featured on the BYTON M-Byte 48-inch screen.

When BYTON committed to creating the first smart device on wheels, this is exactly the kind of engagement we had in mind,” said BYTON CEO Dr. Daniel Kirchert. “The BYTON M-Byte with its unique user experience will offer developers the opportunity to present in-car interactions in a way that is more engaging than ever before.

And a smart device on wheels they create. This week, prior to CES 2020, BYTON revealed its new content providers for the massive 48-inch screen housed in the M-Byte.

ViacomCBS and ACCESS will be able to provide in-car theatre experiences to the passengers of the M-Byte directly on the 48-inch screen, which the carmaker calls the BYTON Stage.

Our aim is to make the BYTON M-Byte a seamless part of your digital life and easy access to compelling video content will be integral to that experience,” said Andreas Schaaf – BYTON CCO.

Ray Hopkins, President, U.S. Networks Distribution, ViacomCBS added: “The future of in-vehicle infotainment is an exciting opportunity to strengthen and extend our connection to our audiences within today’s fragmented media environment.

BYTON also announced the BYTON Developers Program during the same event. This program will enable innovators to create apps for the BYTON Stage and in-car experience.

That being said, AccuWeather showcased their app at the conference. The leader in worldwide weather forecasting accuracy is part of the BYTON connected car strategy. The AccuWeather app “will not only report the weather conditions on-demand but intuitively inform users of upcoming changes in weather at their destination,” says the premium electric vehicle manufacturer.

The all-new M-Byte infotainment experience with partners ViacomCBS and ACCESS can be seen at the BYTON booth during the CES 2020 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
