Griffin Media releases OTT Apps powered by Whiz Technologies

Whiz OTTNewsPack platform with Always Playing and Live Alert technology delivers increased engagement and audience growth for Griffin's TV stations
SAN JOSE, Calif. - March 17, 2021 - PRLog -- Whiz Technologies announced that it delivered new OTT television apps for Griffin Media's two broadcast television stations. All the apps are available in the respective app stores and are being actively used.

"We had very specific requirements for our OTT apps, most notably the ability to alert the viewer when a new live video stream was available. We spoke to several vendors and Whiz was the only one ready and able to deliver this technology for us," said Richard Cox, Griffin Director of Digital Services. "Adding support for OTT was a natural next step for us, because Whiz has helped manage our news mobile apps for several years. This excellent working relationship has made Whiz a key partner for our app strategy."

"We are very pleased to be the vendor of choice and part of the team delivering OTT apps for Griffin Media's broadcast television stations. We have built and included two cutting edge features in our OTTNewsPack platform, 'Always Playing' and 'Live Alert'", said Nikhil Modi, founder and CEO of Whiz Technologies. "The Always Playing feature allows the user to continue to browse for additional shows and videos while playing one video. The Live Alert feature lets the user know when there is other live programming available to watch."

Houston Hunt, Griffin's VP of Marketing, added, "Their development speed and focus on delivering solutions has made Whiz one of our best Digital partners."
