Zeebox Rebrands As Beamly, Evolves Beyond a Second Screen App

Beamly_Masterbrand_HeroZeebox today announced that it is launching its new services as Beamly. The rebranding is meant to signify the evolution of the company from a social TV companion and second screen app to a full-service content network; one that will allow fans to engage with their favorite shows throughout the week.

“A lot has happened in the evolution of social TV since we launched two years ago,” Jason Forbes, EVP and GM of Zeebox U.S., told Lost Remote. “We’ve seen our audience skew younger, with more than 60 percent of our audience now female and under 35. That demographic is a lot more social and wants more than a second screen app and TV guide, which is what we initially launched. They want a 24/7 social and content network for TV and that’s exactly what we’ve evolved to become.”

Beamly’s 24/7 approach can be broken down into five buckets: follow, find, chat, discover, and interact. TV fans will be able to follow shows and TV personalities, find and connect with others fans around shows, chat in Beamly’s TV Rooms, discover new shows, and interact with custom games, voting, and synched experiences.
