Vewd, the global market player in enabling OTT, has announced that Adventure Sports Network (ASN), an OTT platform serving the ever-growing outdoor/adventure sports and lifestyle community, has debuted in the Vewd App Store. The Vewd App Store is available on devices manufactured by Sony, Samsung, TiVo, HiSense, and Vestel. ASN is part of The Enthusiast Network’s Adventure Sports Group, the world’s premier network of enthusiast brands in the action/outdoor market.
Whether viewers dream of climbing 14ers, catching big waves at Mavericks or just wants to sit back and enjoy the world’s best outdoor and adventure sports content from the comfort of their own home, ASN has them covered. The app features videos from some of the most recognized publishers in adventure sports, including TransWorld SKATEboarding, TransWorld SNOWboarding, and SURFER Magazine.
To launch the ASN app, TEN leveraged Unreel.me and its integration with Vewd Snap. This turnkey solution builds a stunning smart TV app in just minutes and then prepares that app for distribution to the world’s largest connected TV ecosystem–almost 50 million Vewd-enabled devices shipping each year in more than 150 countries.
“Bringing our content to Vewd and its enormous global footprint was a priority,” says Kris Heineman, Director of Audience Development, at The Enthusiast Network’s Adventure Sports Group. “We were amazed how quickly and easily we were able to get an app built, certified and distributed. This means more of our focus can be on what matters–producing visually stunning content across all of our properties.”
Adding to the great content available, TEN’s Adventure Sports Group is launching nine additional apps focused on its key publications, including Snowboarder, Canoe and Kayak, Newschoolers, POWDER, SUP, TransWorld SNOWboarding, TransWorld SKATEboarding, TransWorld Motocross, and SURFER.
“TransWorld SKATEboarding is an institution in the skateboarding industry. The Rodney Mullen cover featuring a classic airwalk inspired me and a whole generation of skateboarders. We are excited to partner with TEN and to bring TransWorld SKATEboarding and their sister publications within the Adventure Sports Network on to the Vewd App Store,” said Daniel Nordberg, SVP Partnerships, Vewd. “ASN tells the stories of fellow outdoor and action sports enthusiasts, as well as the encounters that happen along the ride. Watch the videos bring to life the joy, the fear, the escape, and fun of the adventure sports community.”
