Building the Future of TV
Building the Future of TV
From the heart of Ottawa’s Kanata North technology park, the team at You.i TV is helping the world’s biggest brands innovate and build the future of media and entertainment.
You.i TV’s flagship product, You.i Engine One, enables the design and development of video apps across screens of all shapes and sizes, including mobile phones, tablets, gaming consoles, streaming devices, set-top boxes, and Smart TVs.
You.i TV believes there’s a better way to innovate in the fragmented world of digital TV. Consumers now have the option of streaming any type of content with the push of a button.
Netflix was the first disrupter in this space: its streaming service now boasts 135 million subscribers on over 100 platforms. Companies aiming to achieve Netflix-like reach and compete in the new digital media landscape face a difficult task.
That’s where You.i TV comes in. Taking inspiration from the video game industry, You.i TV’s approach to cross-platform development uses a unified codebase to deliver high performance, consistently rich experiences across any screen.
This fast-growing company has already helped global brands like NFL, A+E Networks, DirecTV, WarnerMedia, NBA, Twitch, and Fox power their direct-to-consumer strategies with You.i Engine One.
You.i TV’s co-founder and CEO, Jason Flick, understands better than anyone that to win today, it’s all about reach. “In 2020, our goal is to reach further with all aspects of our business.
For one, we’re reaching further with our physical space, having just expanded into the third and final floor of our building. We also plan to reach further with our continued international expansion, including new customers in Europe and Asia.
2020 will also see You.i TV grow our product and solutions teams to help our customers reach more platforms and get their content everywhere.”
Like their tech, You.i TV has designed an office space and culture that is both flexible and welcoming, creating an open environment for employees to express themselves at work.
Their state-of-the-art facility is the work home for over 200 employees, with more staff in offices worldwide. It’s an employee-centric culture, where meeting rooms are named after staff favourite video games; yoga, fitness, and meditation classes are offered weekly; and their award-winning mental health programming has been recognized in the community.
The company is proud to be a leader in the Kanata North technology park and show other Canadian startups what’s achievable when art and science are combined.
