Apps in a Snap: Vewd and Unreel.me Give Content Owners Fast Time to Market

Unreel.me strengthens turnkey platform by adding Vewd Snap compatibility

OSLO, Norway – April 9, 2018 – Vewd, the global market leader in enabling OTT, and Unreel.me, the leading white labeled OTT turnkey platform, have partnered to provide content owners a fast and easy path to expand the reach and monetization of their smart TV apps.

Unreel.me added compatibility with Vewd Snap, the industry’s leading app creation and distribution tool, to their turnkey OTT platform. Using a minimal set of inputs and in just a few minutes, Vewd Snap creates a TV app that works on Vewd enabled devices. With almost 50 million Vewd enabled devices entering the market each year, Vewd Snap offers the most cost-effective solution for content owners seeking to grow their distribution through the world’s largest connected TV ecosystem.

“Today Unreel.me takes another step to allow its customers to distribute on one of the world’s largest OTT platforms,” said Dan Goikhman, CEO, Unreel.me. “Thanks to our partnership, content owners have a seamless solution that results in a distributed, monetized OTT app in less than a day, and with minimal effort required by the partner. There’s not a single partnership in our industry with a faster time to market.”

Unreel.me is one of the key partners to bring content owners into the Vewd ecosystem. Unreel.me handles the hosting and management of the content, which is easily ingested by Vewd Snap. Vewd Snap produces an HTML5 app that is distributed through the Vewd App Store and can be monetized as the content owner chooses. This process removes any commercial and technical complexity that stands between content owners and the vast, global Vewd ecosystem.

Leading manufacturers like Sony, Tivo, HiSense, Vestel and more use Vewd to bring streaming video apps to consumers. Working together, Unreel.me and Vewd provide content owners a one-stop shop to get their app built, making it easy to distribute, manage and monetize a TV app.

Already the partnership has resulted in 35 new apps joining the Vewd App Store almost immediately. These include Level One, Vids Gone Viral, Bumblebee TV, JustLOL, Pumba Kids TV, Taste It, and Unreel.me holiday favorites HalloweenFlix and Christmas Zone.

“Unreel.me and Vewd are ideal partners for content owners who want to take advantage of the consumer shift to video on demand,” said Daniel Nordberg, SVP Partnerships, Vewd. “The 35 apps we’ve launched in a short period underscore how quickly content owners can get to market and take advantage of the incredible opportunity OTT presents. We look forward to working collaboratively with all of the world’s content owners to simplify the complexity of pursuing OTT strategies, helping them get their TV app running and growing in a snap.”
