StreamTV searches Amazon, Netflix and iTunes, compares reviews, finds your favourite titles and those you’ve been waiting to discover. Launching this August, it claims to be “the world’s first trusted and intuitive resource for online viewing”.
Created in Cornwall by Ashley Hampson, Robert Heath and Paul Allen, the concept arrived a year ago following their frustration at time spent searching for movies and TV shows online.
Hampson explained: “We saw a gap in the market for a single, legal website which allows people to easily locate shows and film. The premise is to provide a simple, trustworthy site that streamlines online viewing. Entirely advert free, we view it as a digital Radio Times.”
Following investment and business support from Invest in|Falmouth University Start-up Enterprises (In|FUSE), the two founders Ashley and Robert (both Falmouth graduates) appointed Paul Allen co-director who helped turn their vision into a reality. StreamTV won an initial start-up loan from the Brightside government initiative before gaining £50,000 worth of investment and significant business support from In|FUSE.
Ahead of launching next month, the trio concluded the final content management phase with the help of over 40 paid student employees.
