This month will see free streaming OTT TVPlayer launch its premium TVPlayer Plus service, with an additional 25 premium channels from popular broadcasters.
TVPlayer already successfully live streams over 60 free-to-air channels in the UK, with more than 1.3 million app downloads and over 500,000 weekly users.
“TVPlayer has seen significant success to date, with over half a million people now watching TV over-the-top each week on our service,” says Adam Smith, founder and CEO of TVPlayer. “Similar to what Netflix has done for movies and Spotify for music, TVPlayer Plus aims to offer a simplified viewing experience of traditional and premium television content —one that works with the devices people already have.”
TVPlayer has selected the HERO encoding platform from Media Excel to power its TVPlayer and TVPlayer Plus service.
