353 Media is an Over The Top Internet TV platform. Our goal is to target emerging TV and Video content and bring forward a new social TV Platform accessible across multiple devices and technologies. As Television infrastructure has changed from Analog/Terrestrial to Digital and Satellite, we believe the next Infrastructure that will carry TV content will be the Internet. The shift has already begun and while pioneers like Netflix have proven the business model, there are emerging opportunities for content creators, advertisers and consumers that have yet to be explored. Second screen and social TV Apps are just in their infancy. 353 Media will create a platform for Content Owners to change how Television content is distributed, consumed and interacted with. 353 Media will initially launch an OTT Service in Ireland using Regional and National Fibre & Broadband providers as distributors for our TV platform. Consumers will received a Media Player (Set Top Box) and/or an online/mobile account/subscription. Our content will be a mix of Free to Air Live channels, VOD and Apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Pluto.TV etc . Our Media Player will also offer access to Android Games store. 353 Media hopes to build a customer base and then offer Professional Content Creators a "TV (Platform) as a Service". Unlike YouTube - this will be an actual Linear Channel that is accessible via remote control. We believe that Professional Content owners will come directly to the Platform and communities will form around consumer interests such as Sports, Drama, Fact, Business, Community etc. We want to reduce the barriers to entry to Television and allow creative content makers an opportunity to build their own audiences. The Model for content distribution is being disrupted, 353 Media wants to be at the forefront of TV content innovation and disruption. We have innovative ideas on content discovery, advertising interaction and social TV. Our goal is to build a consumer service and get real time feedback on these innovations that prove most successful. Our basic consumer service will include EPG, Catch-up, VOD, Cloud and Network DVR, Games and Social Sharing. It will be hosted on our P2P CDN and use some off the shelve existing technology. 353 Media has already secured support from Content Owners and Infrastructure providers for the trail. The FIWARE program could accelerate our development with access to funds and open technology and infrastructure.
