The past couple of weeks have been all about creating apps and helping customers unleash their content into the world. We are at 130 apps in the wild and counting. Some of the most recent notable app launches include Global Citizen , Crunch Fitness , Shout! FactoryTV , Star Talk and Whitetail TV .
Sing It Far And Wide, For A Great Cause
Global Citizen is a social action platform that seeks to solve the world’s most pertinent problems. You may have heard of the 2016 Global Citizen Festival, where Rihanna , Kendrick Lamar and Metallica performed. Well, Zype actually powered the live streaming for the whole event, and we’re also helping bring Global Citizen to OTT. You can currently watch the GC team change the world on Roku, Apple TV and AFTV.
Held in New York City’s Central Park (on the massive Great Lawn), the festival hosted 60,000 kind, caring and excited fans-rocking out and getting down for a great cause. The goal? To end extreme poverty by 2030.
