Flipps' patented technology immediately works with over 250M connected TVs and is compatible with over 5,000 manufacturer models requiring no set up, no pairing of devices, no cables, no dongle and no set top box. The Council for Research Excellence confirms that TV is still the primary viewing platform with 84% of viewing hours. Additionally, Nielsen cites that searching for and viewing online entertainment on a mobile device continues to accelerate rapidly with the latest year-over-year increase of 37%. With over 10M downloads of its mobile app, Flipps is successfully addressing both of these trends by combining the richness of TV viewing with easy content discovery on a mobile device.

Flipps has amassed over 100 channels in its growing library of licensed content including popular online TV series like Back On Topps, hit Hollywood movies, and news from The Washington Post. "Watching quality entertainment on your TV has become overly confusing with the need for costly hardware devices and complicated remote controls. People should just be able to lean back and watch what they want, when they want without needing an engineering degree," states Kosta Jordanov, CEO of Flipps. "At Flipps, we've figured out an easy and universally compatible way to turn your smartphone into a magic wand of entertainment that projects onto the big screen."
