The two companies have begun working on Smart TVs that will run on the Firefox OS that has so far only been seen on a few low-end smartphones. The eventual goal is to center future "Smart Homes" around the operating system.
Mozilla says the partnership will allow developers "to build apps and cloud services into future televisions based on the same APIs that underpin Mozilla's web and mobile offerings." It remains unclear how the interface will work and how it will be improvised for the big screen.
Smart TVs have been the centerpieces of CES this year, with LG showing their webOS revival for the big screen, and Vizio, Samsung and others all showing new 4K devices with fully enabled Smart TV controls.
There was no timetable provided for the Firefox OS-powered TVs.
