BrizzTV: Meet the next generation digital media technology company

thesiliconreview amarendra sahu brizztv

“We work on the cross section of internet, carrier (cable/satellite) and set-top-box technologies to deliver a new age TV experience to homes on any TV network.”

BrizzTV fundamentally re-imagines TV for the new age by opening it up for new forms of media content, new ad formats and a new set of advertisers – all at the same time adding more value to consumers, service providers and broadcasters. BrizzTV is a next generation digital media technology company that brings web content of choice to one's living room couches that can be enjoyed on TV with a simple remote key press. Unlike other web TV products, BrizzTV's patented platform's web services are available on same old TV sets and does not require even an internet connection .All that one needs is a direct to home (DTH) TV & knowledge of how to press a remote key to be able to enjoy internet content on TV.

A venture capital backed TV technology start-up in Bangalore, India, BrizzTV is designed and deployed a patent pending TV platform that interfaces legacy TV networks (satellite/cable/terrestrial) with the worldwide web such that even a 10 year old CRT TV with a set-top without any internet connection can

Social conversations on TV shows- TV is fun. Be it English Premier League in ESPN, breaking news or reality shows on popular channels - people love TV programs & interact with them on social networks like Twitter. These interactions on social networks (news parody, star gossip) are no less fun than the shows themselves.

What if someone offers you an option to get these additional social conversations directly on the TV while you are watching the show?

No hunting, no thinking – Press a button on your good old remote and the content pops-up, at your service.

The best part - you don't need an internet connection or a smart TV to enjoy it. It works with your existing cable/satellite connection on your 21 inch old CRT TV that your dad bought 10 years back.

Freemium Movies- Bollywood is a hosepipe. Khans, Kumars and Kapoors alone act in more movies than you can practically watch in theatres. So you resort to pirated DVDs or torrents. No more. BrizzTV bring you latest bollywood movies for FREE on Airtel DTH channel 155. Wait, before you mistake them for another sundry movie channel - they bring you movies that are as new as 3 - 6 months in original print without a single commercial AD break!

What is the catch? You see it in 75% of the screen space instead of the entire screen. The remaining 25% screen is used for an L-shaped ad. You can watch the entire movie for FREE in 75% of the screen or pay Rs.50 to watch it ad free. It's more like watching the movie on youtube but on TV with better audio and video quality. Needless to say, unlike youtube, even your old grandma can watch it.

iExam - India prepares with BrizzTV

If someone told you that it’s harder to crack IIT/AIIMS/IIMs without professional coaching, they are probably right. But if they said you can't make it to these top schools if you live in hinterlands of India or because your dad can't afford these costly tuitions, you need to tell her about iExam.

BrizzTV bring the best of professional competitive test preparation services from brands you trust - Aakash Institute, Career Point and T.I.M.E. at never heard of prices.

No need of going to Delhi for their classroom programs if you think that's not your cup of tea or its just out of your budget. iExam brings you their coaching material, sample questions and solutions straight to your doorstep - ON YOUR TV.

TV App Store- Why should TV lose out in the war of Android and iPhone?

With BrizzTV’s DTH app store! One will be spoilt for choice here too. Games, photos, movies, recipes or social networks, you will find them all.

Not just that, BrizzTV understand how much you love your TV shows more than the smart TV's of the world. With them, one can browse apps while watching the TV show in full screen till the time you decide to launch the app in full screen mode.
