Company honored to be selected one of 2015’s top providers of online video services
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – June 24, 2015 –YipTV, the fast-growing OTT broadband television service that brings live-channel broadcasts from around the globe to tens of millions of multi-lingual foreign-born consumers living in the United States, reflected on being selected to the FierceOnlineVideo “Fierce 15,” designating it as one of the this year’s top privately held providers of online video services.
Of all the providers they evaluated, editors at FierceOnlineVideo found YipTV to be one of the most “fierce” in the 2015 online video services category, judging it poised for significant growth in the years ahead.
“FierceMarkets has always distinguished itself as a truly discriminating evaluator of participants in the many industries it covers, so naturally we are thrilled to have been selected among this year’s ‘Fierce 15’ by FierceOnlineVideo just a little over a month after launching our service,” said YipTV CEO Michael Tribolet. “Being selected for this honor validates our concept that there’s a huge under-served market segment of more than 40 million people living in the U.S. who, given a choice, will opt for TV content from their home countries.”
The FierceOnlineVideo “Fierce 15” celebrates companies with the spirit of being “fierce,” championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition. The complete list of winning companies is available on the FierceOnlineVideo web site athttp://www.fierceonlinevideo.com.
“With YipTV, we created the first multi-channel Over the Top television provider of personalized, low-cost TV content that eliminates the need for cable or satellite TV subscriptions,” Tribolet added. “Much like how Fierce recognized Vonage some years back in VoIP, they see the same opportunity in the making with OTT television. We are available over any type of wired or wireless broadband connection and use Internet-based delivery technology to provide affordable access to international programming content at only $14.99 a month. Best of all, we are delivering this without any long-term service commitments or contracts. That’s something even Vonage didn’t originally do.”

In addition to Android- or iOS-enabled smart devices, YipTV lets subscribers explore a whole world of live telecasts using a Smart TV, laptop or desktop computer.

“FierceOnlineVideo has recognized how YIPTV gives viewers a highly personalized entertainment experience wherever, whenever and however they choose, whether watching at home or on the go. We take that recognition as affirmation that we’re on the right track,” added Tribolet.
