FreeCast Caps Record Year with Bold Ambition: To Be in Every Home
After moving online in 2014, FreeCast’s web TV products have been making inroads everywhere video is watched.
As the year comes to an end, FreeCast has a lot to look back on after a game-changing year for the online video startup. This year the company was recognized as one of Inc Magazine’s 500 fastest growing private companies, and there’s been no shortage of reasons why. After moving to a web-based platform in 2014, the company has spent this year making strides and attracting new users on social and mobile platforms. The celebrated debut of Rabbit TV Lite was followed up by the launch of enhanced apps for Android and iOS devices, each available free of charge.
FreeCast CEO William Mobley talked about the impact FreeCast has had on the online video space over the past year. “FreeCast has always been about so much more than just building a bigger video library than the next guy. Over the past year, we’ve launched the best online video experience on Facebook, complete with everything from streaming major networks to 360° video channels. We’ve put over 1000 channels, more than even the largest cable subscriptions, on the latest generation of consumer devices: Android, iOS, and Windows tablets like Microsoft’s Surface, creating the best video experience on mobile. Each of them supports Chromecast, so you can literally replace your cable box. And speaking of boxes, we also revealed Select TV, which will be a total game changer in the pay-TV industry. Stay tuned for several surprising new consumer products from us next year.”
As consumers begin to bundle streaming services in hopes of replacing traditional TV subscriptions, FreeCast is making it possible to combine these thousands of viewing options into a single simple interface that’s available on all devices. As the leading company doing so, FreeCast expects to become a staple of the new entertainment industry, with products in every home. Having sold over 4 million subscriptions to Rabbit TV Plus, and with millions more accessing the company’s freely available apps, that goal could be a lot closer than many industry observers expect, as 2016 promises even more surprises for the fast-ascending startup.
