The History channel to work with You.i TV video experience platform on React Native TV-connected app

You.i TV has been chosen as the enabling technology to extend the History TVE (TV everywhere) 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, an open source, javascript application framework, You.i TV has integrated its cross-platform software development kit (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, said You.i TV.

Raj Bahl, SVP and CTO, digital media, A+E Networks, said: “History has always been at the forefront of breaking new ground when it comes to storytelling, and our technology strategy is no different.

“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.”
