‘Self-service’ video-streaming service ‘Selfie’ gets a big boost
Video-streamer Selfie is getting a boost from its first-ever self-service upgrade.
The company has partnered with Facebook to provide a free trial of its new Selfie TV app, which lets users stream and download video-on-demand.
Users of the app will be able to access a “tune-in” screen, where they can choose to either access the app via a video or audio stream.
They can also stream to their smartphone via a dedicated streaming app for $5 per month, the company says.
The $5 monthly fee is cheaper than most subscription video-only services, but it’s also a steep $6 per month for an unlimited stream.
It’ll take about two months to see the full value of this feature.
Selfie also announced a free “tour” app for its “trending” apps.
That app, dubbed “Tours”, will allow users to “catch up” on all of the company’s trending apps, including “Selfie” and “Snapchat.”
Selfie TV will also now allow users “to stream from the comfort of their home.”
This comes a day after the company announced it was expanding its self-serve streaming service to other platforms like Roku and Apple TV.
Selfies customers can also subscribe to the app for free.
It currently supports only Apple TV and Roku.
