    Beachfront automates app building for Roku, Google TV, Samsung and LG — Tech News and Analysis (click for full article)

    SUMMARY: Beachfront Media just added the ability to build templated apps for Roku boxes, Google TVs and other connected devices. One of the first to take advantage of this seems to be College Humor.


    "Distributing video content to connected TV platforms just got a bit easier: Beachfront Media, the company behind the video discovery site Mefeedia, added an option to build apps to Roku, Google TV, Samsung and LG to its Beachfront Builder offering. Some of the first publishers mentioned by Beachfront for taking advantage of this are the lifestyle TV network Plum TV and YouTuber Tyler Oakley, but a bit of digging unveiled that College Humor seems to be on board as well.


    Beachfront Media launched its Beachfront Builder in private beta last summer, initially focusing on Android and iOS apps based on a number of preformatted templates. Building apps is completely free, but publishers that want to monetize their apps need to become premium customers, which involves revenue share as well as a startup fee. Premium customers can elect to run their own ads against their content, have Beachfront sell inventory for them, or take advantage of both."

    YouTube Network Big Frame Launches Multiplatform Apps Thanks To Beachfront Builder | TechCrunch (click for full article)

    by RYAN LAWLER - posted 2 hours ago

    "Launched last June, Beachfront Media's Beachfront Builder platform was designed to allow video producers to quickly roll out apps across a number of devices. Those apps would have custom skins and could even serve ads, with videos streamed out either via the YouTube API or by connecting to creator's own content management system. In the time since then, it's gotten a few content producers on board, most notably YouTube network Big Frame."
