Celebrating 10 million users—and an investment to boot!

We’re very excited to announce that we’ve hit 10,000,000 downloads! We’ve always said that we have the most awesome, loyal fans and today, it’s really ringing true.

When we launched Flipps in 2011, we hoped to create a simplified TV streaming experience that doesn’t involve all the hassle of buying new hardware and typing numbers into a TV remote. We were amazed at the outpour of positive responses that followed.

Every day we work hard to make Flipps a smoother and more refined experience. We love getting feedback about how Flipps has become a part of people’s daily TV watching routine. We really couldn’t have done it without your support.

And since they say good news comes in twos (that’s a thing, right?), we’re stoked to announce our $2.4M investment from Earlybird Venture Capital. A huge thank you to the whole team who believes in the Flipps vision of a unified, no frills video streaming experience.
