May 2016 – May 2017
...this is an interesting one for a couple of reasons: First, it opens up a whole world of live streaming content to Apple TV and such owners... as Twitter continues to sign new partnerships with organizations like the NFL for additional live streams, it’s going to open a lot of doors...
After acquiring the rights to Thursday Night Football, Twitter began to make a play for the livingroom. HFC collaborated with Twitter's design team and built the apps, on tvOS, Android TV and Fire OS, in just a few short months.
I was part of the team that responded to the original RFP, and acted as account manager throughout the first year of the project, seeing its expansion from tvOS to the additional platforms. The app launched to warm critical reception and promising numbers in Sept 2016.
It won App of the Year for 2016. In June 2017, live-streaming 360 video was launched on Apple TV.
