Changing the Face of Television

App-like user experience is transforming the TV. Video streaming apps are the future, which happens nowadays. According to the Cisco Visual Networking Index traffic of the mobile video streaming apps will continue to grow by more than 50% per year until 2021. In addition, a quantity of mobile devices and number of people using them is growing every day.

That’s why the ability to stream video directly to mobile device cannot be underestimated. The expansion of the channel audience through mobile applications is the right step for adaptation in a new digital environment.

Besides there are many times when a user wants to see a live stream or some sort of a show but real life issues come in the way. that is why a local storage feature is so important. It allows user to download video content to their devices and watch it later. We’ve made a user centric design with intuitive UI enabling quick access and easy browsing so that applications run flawlessly and, as required, can be easily maintained and scaled.
