Using Lightning for Smart TVs part 2

In his last blog, 24i’s App Tech Strategy Lead, Matthijs Langedijk, took us deep into the practicalities of developing video streaming apps for Smart TVs and other streaming devices using the Lightning framework. In this follow-up blog, he moves on from the “how” of developing with Lightning, to look at the “why” question. Is it actually a good idea for video streaming services to consider making Lightning their framework of choice for Samsung, LG, Sony (Android TV) screens and Amazon (Fire TV) devices?

If you’ve read my previous blog in this series, you’ll know it’s possible to port a video streaming app made in LightningJS to various big screen devices like Smart TVs. You’ll probably also be able to tell that Lightning has clearly become my personal framework of choice for building TV applications. But does it make sense from a business perspective for OTT and Pay TV streaming companies considering their next moves in streaming?
