The fastest way to create Apps for Apple TV, Roku, and Fire TV.
Launch in a few days, not months: Simply connect your videos, upload your logo and we’re ready to launch your own branded OTT apps to the app stores.
No coding needed. No complex integrations.
(Pull in your video content from Vimeo, a video feed, or simply copy and paste your video URLs.)
Say goodbye to moving all your video content.
Most OTT platforms require you to upload ALL of your video content to their platforms. We don’t. Tappla connects to wherever you currently host your videos (e.g. Vimeo, CDN, or your own server) and automatically syncs any changes you make.
Connect your Vimeo videos & playlists
Tappla has a powerful integration with Vimeo. Once connected, Tappla automatically syncs & updates your videos, playlists, thumbnails etc.
Add videos from your content feed (e.g. Roku JSON feed)
Have you used Roku Direct Publisher already? Then use the same feed URL to build your Apple TV app with Tappla.
Add videos one-by-one (copy/paste video URLs)
Simply copy and paste your video streaming URLs from your CDN or custom server to manually add videos one at a time.
Building Apps the Old Way is complicated & full of setbacks
Think twice before going with an overpriced TV App Development Agency.
You need the flexibility to update your app by yourself.
You don’t have the budget to pay extra
You have a tight budget? Or simply want to try it out first? Paying an app development agency quickly can cost you thousands of dollars just to get started with a basic app.
You want to launch now, not in 2-6 months

Over The Top Media Services (OTT Apps)
Over the top (OTT) apps provide new opportunities for broadcasting companies, video producers and media licence owners to reach new audiences directly in the family room via Apple TV, Roku or Amazon Fire TV.
As OTT apps stream media (e.g. video content) over the internet you can bypass the cable service providers. You don´t need to get one of the rare TV channel spots of cable TV anymore. All you need is to develop an OTT App for Apple TV, Roku or Fire TV.
Create Your Own TV Channel

This makes sense for many different use case. For example many churches use Tappla to build their own custom church TV app. Then their audience can browse the video library of your own TV Channel / App & select the videos they want to watch (video on demand). Your videos will be accessible any time, day or night.
