Like Radio UK wanted to develop a new-age TV app that lets young artists register and upload their songs, videos, and performances cost-effectively. They wanted this app to be an independent video sharing platform that runs seamlessly on high-definition televisions. They wanted Capital Numbers to build this app that was meant to redefine smart TV experiences.
We were excited to take up this project for more reasons than one. Firstly, Like Radio UK was a former client. We had already developed unique web and mobile app solutions for them earlier. Naturally, working with a former client is always a pleasure. Secondly, the client had trusted us once again with a TV app development project, which was a whole new ballgame for us. This was a new scope for us, and we were excited to traverse this uncharted territory.
- Front-end Dev
- Back-end Dev
We had a clear roadmap of bringing in the most reliable solutions for this project from the get-go.
We came up with interesting prototypes that adhere to the style guides of an engaging TV app. We created mockups to decide on a dashboard that delivers an outstanding viewing experience.
The resulting product, Spod.tv, was a competitive, user-driven TV app that was a key driver of our client’s on-demand entertainment strategy. Capital Numbers brought together a well-balanced team to create this TV app with extended backend features from the ground up.
Our client highly approved our willingness to go that extra mile to design impressive UIs for TV. It was a new area for us, and our experts did a brilliant job at that.
- On-time Delivery
As scheduled, we successfully created the app on-time and within budget, despite its new format.
- Multiple Sections
Our specialists incorporated an eye-catching TV app design with key sections like:
- Artist Zone
- DJ Zone
- Mapping Table
While developing the app, we used Dacast as a video hosting platform. Since there was no option to keep track of individual video IDs in Dacast, our engineers created a mapping table manually in the backend to keep a record of all video IDs. This creative solution, put forth by our engineers, was truly commendable.
- Pixel-perfect App Design
Finally, we ran the app on Amazon Fire TV and found that it works perfectly with no fuzziness, double images, or display issues.
- New Business Scope
This project gave us the impetus to tie up with new clients looking to launch their apps on popular streaming platforms like Amazon Fire TV and Roku. It prepared us to take up new TV app development projects with a lot more confidence and conviction.
- Client Testimonial
Our client was happy and counted on us for future projects looking at our sheer commitment and dedication. They added:
“I have used Capital Numbers on a few projects in a couple of years and they have delivered every time. I have a number of projects later this year, which they will be involved in.”
We couldn’t be more proud of our star performers involved in this project that was a huge learning curve for us.
