Solution

With a growing interest in streaming technologies and ubiquitous expansion of Apple TV, the Customer decided to add a tvOS version to their media portal for fans of old and rare movies.

The final solution was based on the tvOS software development kit, dedicated to delivering Apple TV apps in full compliance with Apple’s rules.

The Apple TV app allows for the following capabilities:

  • Browsing through the film library by applying genre filters;
  • Viewing annotations & cover images;
  • Playing a chosen movie using a high-level interface, provided by the AVKit framework.

To ensure consistent, pleasing user experience, our team paid special attention to the UI and UX part of the solution, using the UIKit framework for delivering clear-cut design of the app’s interface compliant with the Apple TV design guidelines (Architecture, UI, Navigation).

Integrated with Facebook via Facebook SDK tvOS kit, the app ensures easy sharing of information about preferred movies and chosen videos on the social network.

For the app monetization, R-Style Lab team used VAST 3.0 Ad Pods to enable the advertising monetization model.
