The app will be offered to consumers either free through an Ad- supported version or through an in-app upgrade that does not include advertising.
The Project 88 Mobile App will enhance the digital video viewing experience with a number of great features, including:
- Play out of all video formats on any CE connected device throughout the home network using iOS or Android Smartphones;
- Ultra HD 4K captured content seamlessly played out on 4K internet connected devices like Roku and game consoles as well as through Ultra HD 4K enabled Smart TV’s from LG, Sony, Samsung and others;
- Support of all video formats up to Ultra HD 4K 60fps for multi-screen play out of video stored on either home media servers or from cloud based services like Dropbox, Google and others
