Flipps App Hops on the Music Video Bandwagon

/ Jul 25, 2014


Flipps has jumped on the music bandwagon right along with its other digital video counterparts. The video streaming app that brings digital content to TV screens via smartphones has partnered with Rhapsody International, a music streaming service that provides ad-free listening to about 1.7 million subscribers.

Rhapsody International is responsible for Rhapsody in the US and Napster all over the world, providing access to users with upwards of 32 million songs. The partnership will now make original music video content, including live performances, from Rhapsody and Napster available to Flipps users.

Recent funding from Tim Draper, Earlybird Venture Capital, and others has provided $2.4 million for the streaming app to expand its content library, which currently houses 100 plus channels. The musical addition means new content for Flipps users from Jason Mraz, Kaskade, and Tim McGraw, among numerous others.

“This partnership adds to our depth of music programming to super-serve Flipps users who are passionate about music,” stated the company’s SVP of partnerships, Michael Patellis. “Music fans can now enjoy their favorite Rhapsody and Napster music content on a big screen TV straight from the Flipps mobile feed.”

The Flipps app is free on both iOS and Android. Now, a Flipps download means immediate access to all music video content available through Napster and Rhapsody on any connected television.

Flipps has offices in San Francisco, New York, and Sofia, Bulgary. It is available for download through the App Store and Google Play.
