The nomination recognises the market impact of TVPlayer as an outstanding digital video platform since first appearing in app stores at the end of 2013. As one of the fastest growing TV platforms in the UK, TVPlayer offers consumers free access to more than 60 free-to-air channels, anytime on any connected device, through a single app.
TVPlayer Plus was recently launched as a low-cost monthly subscription service with an additional 24 pay-TV channels made available via the existing app. TVPlayer is also now being offered as a white label service, highlighting the commercial demand for TVEverywhere services, as the popularity of streaming video increases.
CEO and Founder of TVPlayer, Adam Smith commented:
“We are thrilled to be shortlisted among a group of such exceptional innovators and to be recognised as a leader in shaping the future of digital content in the UK. We launched TVPlayer with the mission of capturing the best of both new and traditional media landscapes and offering this to consumers in the most seamless and accessible way. Our platform enables premium channels and content providers to extend their engagement with new generations of TV consumers, as well as retaining the loyalty of their traditional customer bases. We are very proud to receive this recognition during an exciting period of development for the business.”
TVPlayer was designed and developed by Simplestream using its unique Media Hub technology. The technology can deliver hundreds of channels, through live streaming, automated live-to-VOD and catch-up content across broadcast and OTT platforms within a single workflow. Media Hub also supports TVPlayer in the collection of in-depth analytics from its expansive database of users, providing significant insight into the viewing behaviour of consumers in the UK.
