One small step for man, one large step for TV

Phew! The last few months at Flipps have been quite a whirlwind. We’ve made some big strides in partnerships, product, and content that we wanted to share with you.

Below is a quick look at some of what we have been up to at Flipps lately.

Magnolia

We recently welcomed Magnolia Pictures to the Flipps family. That means Golden-Globe nominated, Sundance-winning movies will now stream on big-screen TVs in the US in seconds. Satellite images No cable subscription required.

In addition to Magnolia, we’ve rolled out several other pay-per-view movie channels including Beta Films, Osiris Entertainment, and Focus Broadcasting. All allow seamless payment through App Store and Google Play in-app purchases.

In addition to helping organizers cover 196 countries with a single deal, Flipps also drives strong incremental traffic and revenues in key markets. Learn more >>
