Rhapsody and Napster videos, music, exclusive interviews and more now available on Flipps

Today, Flipps announced a partnership with Rhapsody International, which operates under Rhapsody in the US and Napster internationally. Rhapsody is the premier streaming music service providing 1.7M music fans (and thousands more each day) with ad-free access to more than 32 million songs. Flipps viewers now have access to original video content from Rhapsody and Napster spanning hot new releases, exclusive interviews, and live performances from favorite artists.

Performances by artists include Jamestown Revival, The Cold and Lovely, Surfer Blood, G. Love and others featured on Rhapsody’s “Stripped Down by the River.” Additionally, Rhapsody’s “South Park Sessions” feature acoustic sets from artists such as Miguel, Mayer Hawthorne, Robert Ellis and Devil Makes Three. Find out what Chuck D says in his exclusive interview on Rhapsody TV about the need for supporting local artists and how “unfair the air” is or what Justin Moore says about how he gets through a hard day.

Rhapsody and Napster videos can now be streamed from the Flipps mobile app to any connected TV worldwide without the need for extra hardware, TV apps or setup.

Flipps uniquely enables Rhapsody to stream music to millions of connected TVs with virtually no technical resources. Unlike other set top box and dongle-reliant TV streaming solutions, Flipps makes video streaming simple and widely available. Streaming Rhapsody videos with Flipps is seamless and instant. Viewers with an Android or iOS device can simply download the Flipps mobile app and stream Rhapsody and Napster content to any connected TV screen. Flipps automatically discovers internet-connected TVs or media players in the home Wi-Fi network, so music fans can now enjoy watching their favorite artists on the big screen.

Toon Goggles joins Flipps with free children’s programming

Great news! We’ve teamed up with Toon Goggles to bring Flipps viewers access to over 100 series of premium family entertainment.

Toon Goggles is a children’s online video portal offering a wide variety of parent-friendly and kid-safe cartoons. With categories ranging from Comedy to Action, Preschool to Educational, and content specifically for boys and girls, Toon Goggles allows children to quickly find new cartoons and stay entertained for hours on end. Shows are available to stream any time of the day so they will never have to wait for their favorites again.

As part of the partnership, Toon Goggles favorites like Bernard, Mouse in the House, Canimals and Eon Kid are now available on the Flipps app. Kids can easily choose the show they want to watch and stream it on any TV in the house.

“In our quest to ensure tech savvy children and parents have access to our great content on the most innovative platforms, it was only natural for Toon Goggles to align itself with Flipps thus allowing viewers to easily ‘flip’ content to larger screens for more enjoyment. Kudos to the great team of engineers at Flipps that worked hard to bring the Toon Goggles channel to its millions of users,” said Stephen Hodge, Managing Director of Toon Goggles and Father.

We think families should be able to watch what they want, whenever they want on the big screen TV, without complicated setup or extra hardware. The Flipps/Toon Goggles partnership is certainly a big step in the direction of a cordless future for family friendly programming and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.
