Epix needed a partner to help their team launch EpixNow, a new OTT video service. Together we worked to develop, test, and deploy the new applications. Specifically our development team was tasked with integrating new end-points and APIs for all the streaming platforms through a process of continuous integration.
The primary challenge was to find developers and QA engineers who understand the differences and subtleties of OTT streaming services and the wide array of devices those services run on.
PLATFORM / STACK
Web, iOS, Apple TV, Android, Roku, and Fire TV
React.js, Redux, ES6, JSX, Typescript, Styled Components, Storybook, and Graphql
The Epix Now web streaming site launched on time in February 2018. At the same time, applications for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV and in Google Play for Android phones and tablets were also launched.
Presently we are working on Roku and Amazon Fire TV applications which will launch this year.
