Panasonic says goodbye to My Home Screen and opts for Fire OS

Panasonic says goodbye to My Home Screen and opts for Fire OS. My Home Screen smart TV system from Mozilla is past thing now.

Panasonic had taken over the My Home Screen smart TV system from Mozilla a few years ago, but developing it had cost them a lot of money and energy. As a result, they have now decided to switch to a different platform. The company has opted for Amazon’s Fire OS instead. This decision is not surprising since Panasonic has been facing tough competition in the TV market for the past few years. Additionally, a number of models with Fire OS have already been launched in the market.

The transition to Fire OS will occur in phases over the next few years. The top models are expected to continue having access to My Home Screen during the upcoming year. This means that customers using these models will still be well-supported in terms of popular services and apps in the coming years.

Panasonic claims that they are not blindly adopting Fire OS. The company states that it will continue to make adjustments to the smart TV platform to meet the requirements and preferences of Panasonic users. The big advantage, however, is that Panasonic will have to invest much less time, energy, and money in this process, and that the popular apps and services will be supported anyway.
