A+E Networks® announced as first You.i TV React Native customer

  • One of the global media company’s most popular and prolific brands, HISTORY®, to work with You.i TV video experience platform on React Native TV-connected app

NEW YORK, NY — A+E Networks®, the global media content company and Emmy-award winning leader of high-quality, thought-provoking original programming, has chosen You.i TV as the enabling technology to extend its popular HISTORY® TVE app — a streaming service that offers hundreds of hours of series, documentaries and specials — to TV-connected devices.

You.i TV’s video experience platform, You.i Engine One, will power a new HISTORY TVE app, based on the React Native development platform. Fully embracing React Native – the open source, javascript application framework – You.i TV has integrated its’ cross-platform SDK to amplify the reach, performance and user experience across connected platforms. As a result, the A&E Network Digital Media team will benefit from increased efficiency and freedom, allowing them to quickly and easily deploy the new HISTORY TVE to connected devices.

“HISTORY has always been at the forefront of breaking new ground when it comes to storytelling, and our technology strategy is no different,” said Raj Bahl SVP & CTO, Digital Media, A+E Networks.

“You.i TV’s platform offered the right mix of tools and workflows to bring our content to connected platforms quickly and efficiently. We look forward to launching this new experience later this year. With a tradition of being anything but traditional, it’s no surprise that A+E Networks is redefining the app experience using React Native,” said Jason Flick, CEO and Co-Founder of You.i TV.

As a member of our early adopters program, A+E’s HISTORY is making history as the first app to market-based on the React Native platform.
