LAS VEGAS — Video discovery/consumer media management platform Zappo TV is pushing out music, photos and videos from mobile phones to a number of connected TVs, said Jan Van Ottele, founder and CEO of Zappo TV during an interview at CES.
Zappo TV just lauched on Android phones. Its mobile application "scans" the house to find the Internet-connected TV so users can play videos or other content on the TV set without changing the settings on the TV, he said. Zappo TV lets users play music, videos, photos and other content via Android or Apple phones across a number of connected TV sets.
Van Ottele added that Zappo TV is in talks with content partners to license its technology to them for pushing out content to TVs.
