DivX announces another partner for certified TVs DivX has announced that Skyworth Group, a Chinese electronics company, will introduce DivX Certified digital TVs this year.
DivX certified DTVs are capable of playing MPEG-4 video, either from USB devices or streamed across a network if the TV has the necessary interface. They can also decode video encoded with a variety of other MPEG-4 tools.

According to a joint press release from the two companies, eventually Skyworth will be selling HDTVs with DivX Plus HD Certification, which among other things means support for Matroska (MKV) files.

The first DivX Certified TVs from Skyworth should be available throughout Oceania in August, and introduced soon after in Europe, Africa & the Middle East.

No date for the introduction of DivX HD Ultra Certified models has been announced.
