Amsterdam, The Netherlands, March 27th 2019 – Today 24i Media, an industry-leading, global video app developer, announced that it is helping power the newly launched streaming service STIRR, from Sinclair Broadcast Group.
Sinclair’s STIRR, powered in part by 24i Media’s app technology, makes popular national news, sports, entertainment, local news and other content available on a variety of mobile and connected TV device platforms in the U.S.
“We are glad to be working with innovative and technology-driven partners like Sinclair Broadcast Group, as our work together contributes to the continuous enhancement of our technology platform and enables us to stay at the forefront of the latest media technologies and services,” said Ramon Duivenvoorden, CCO at 24i Media.
Using 24i’s module-based technology, media companies and broadcasters such as Sinclair, can create and launch immersive and flexible streaming video services on all screens, tailored to their needs. With this modular approach, customers are offered a faster and more flexible way of building their apps with state-of-the-art components and third-party integrations.
“STIRR extends the reach of broadcast content and brings our original digital content to even more users,” said Adam Ware, general manager of STIRR. “24i’s application development platform has helped us efficiently deliver an exceptional product.”
Leveraging 24i’s SmartTemplate solution and proprietary AppCore technology platform allows for smooth customization and repurposing of the UI, offering scalability and a template-based approach for easy customization across a number of connected devices and enhancements at any time. 24i and Sinclair worked together to ensure consistency of the STIRR branding across Apple TV, Android, FireTV, Roku and iOS.
“The OTT multiscreen environment is always changing, and it’s important that broadcasters differentiate the user experience and ensure a fast time to market for their services,” said Martijn van Horssen, CEO at 24i Media. “With the launch of STIRR, Sinclair Broadcast Group is taking a pivotal step in offering their viewers a truly original and personalized viewing and user experience. We are incredibly excited to be working with STIRR as they endeavor to drive their next phase of digital growth with video.

A new OTT report from Parks Associates predicts OTT services will accelerate their global expansion over the next five years, with more than 310 million connected households having
at least one OTT service by 2024. OTT Video Services: Disruptive Globalization estimates approximately 200 million households had at least one OTT service at home at the end of 2018.
"The U.S. leads in adoption of subscription OTT services, but other regions are experiencing significant growth as new services expand across borders," said Brett Sappington, Senior Research Director, Parks Associates. "Content producers and OTT service providers want to capture audiences, and revenues, worldwide. As a result, Western Europe and other global markets will experience more rapid subscriber growth than North America over the next few years.”
“The US leads in adoption of subscription OTT services, but other regions are experiencing significant growth as new services expand across borders,” said Brett Sappington, senior research director, Parks Associates . “Content producers and OTT service providers want to capture audiences, and revenues, worldwide. As a result, Western Europe and other global markets will experience more rapid subscriber growth than North America over the next few years.”
The report also found that device preferences vary significantly from country to country. While US households prefer smart TVs or streaming-media devices, Canadians more often use game consoles than the Americans, and in Asia, smartphones and mobile-only devices are most prevalent.
“Ultimately, the success or failure of a service relies on the quality of its content library, but small variations in pricing and user experience can cause significant adoption differences across countries,” Sappington said.
“For example, HBO has tested its OTT service with pricing tailored to specific regions, with variances from Spain to the Nordic countries to the US. This level of experimentation will continue in the near term as service providers and content creators continue to test and tweak to find
the right formula for pricing, content and service quality for each region.”
