About the Entry



Daystar Television Network, the fastest-growing, faith-based network in the world, wanted to design and build a mobile and tablet experience for their internationally distributed television content including original and syndicated programming. Daystar wanted to keep the app design fresh and simple, to look like a television network and maximize the audience reach. Brightcove and Lightmaker partnered to deliver an incredible app that provides an innovative experience for the Daystar audience.

The Daystar app is a new way for viewers to interact with the Daystar Television Network. Viewers can now watch a live stream of the Daystar channel or save a list of their favorite videos with Daystar On Demand. Viewers can also submit user-generated content including Prayer Requests, Praise Reports, videos and photos, as well as request tickets to be included in a live studio audience.

The app was developed using PhoneGap as the framework and Brightcove's Video Cloud to power the distribution of live and on demand video content to the apps.
