Today app creator Applicaster announced its new partnership with Nexstar Media Group’s WGN America to launch the media organization’s first-ever mobile app. This will be a new way for viewers to access WGN America programming on their own time outside of traditional linear TV viewing.
“As a media organization that is constantly generating fresh content for our viewers, it is important that we are able to reach audiences independent of device and location,” said Brian Dollenmayer, Chief Marketing Officer. “Applicaster’s platform has allowed us to quickly and efficiently create an engaging, user-friendly app experience to drive audience interaction. Media consumption is continually changing, and our work with Applicaster has enabled us to extend viewership and interaction beyond the historical viewing experience.”
“Our goal from the start has been to help media companies evolve and thrive in the changing digital landscape,” said Jonathan Laor, CEO and Co-Founder at Applicaster. “We’re delivering on this mission for WGN America by bridging the gap between linear TV and mobile environments to create a consistent experience for their audience.”
To watch WGN America through the new app, you’ll need a cable TV login. AT&T TV Now currently carries the WGN America channel.
