Flipps Kids on Mobile & TV - Entertainment On The Go
Flipps Kids programming comes just in time for summer when families can bring entertainment and educational shows on the go via mobile device as they hit the road on vacation, visit friends and family or stay at a hotel. Using a smartphone or tablet as a remote control, families can project their favorite content onto any connected TV providing a more rewarding lean-back, big-screen experience. While mobile device usage by kids has tripled in the last three years, Common Sense Media confirms that children still spend 75 minutes per day in front of the TV. With over 10M downloads of its mobile app and 100+ channels of premium content, Flipps is successfully addressing both of these trends by combining the richness of TV viewing with easy content discovery and repeated playback from a mobile device.
To meet the growing demand for kid's content, Flipps has amassed hundreds of licensed animated blockbuster movies and cartoons including the Angry Birds series and such classics as Popeye and Merrie Melodies. Some of Flipps' recent partnerships and new programs include, batteryPOP (original series "Puppet Heap's Mother Hubbard" and the sketch comedy show "Totally Random"), Happy ("Angry Birds", "Shrek"), HooplaKidz (world's largest kids content channel on YouTube), Studio 100 (one of the largest independent catalogues of children's content, characters and classics), Toon Goggles (over 170 series including their top shows), Viewster ("Daffy Duck", "Woody the Woodpecker", "Betty Boop") and VIPO Land ("VIPO Adventures of the Flying Dog", "Surviving Time Island with VIPO and Friends").
"Kids crave on-demand programming, but often consume it on mobile devices. We made it extremely easy for kids and parents to discover and 'flip' a wide range of entertainment and educational programming to a big-screen TV and control it all from the phone," said Kosta Jordanov, Flipps CEO and father of two.
Flipps delivers on-demand entertainment to any nearby connected TV from your mobile device without any additional hardware. The company has offices in San Francisco, New York and Sofia, Bulgaria and is backed by Tim Draper, Earlybird Venture Capital, Hasan Aslanoba, LAUNCHub and Teres Capital. Flipps' patented technology immediately works with over 250M connected TVs and is compatible with over 5,000 manufacturer models requiring no set up, no pairing of devices, no cables, no dongle and no set top box.
