What is it?

Castr OTT app is a customized mobile app that your viewers can download on Apple Store and Google Play store to conveniently browse and watch your Livestream and video files from Video Hosting.

The OTT app is customized just for you, so it only showcases your live streams and video content.

Here's a sneak peek of how the app would look like:

How to Get Your OTT App

You will need an active Castr plan as all OTT app controls and new content releases are managed from Castr's web dashboard. Note that setting up your OTT app also comes with a one-time extra cost.

Please reach out to our support team, and we'll walk you through the process. Once all details are finalized, we will develop the test version of the app in 24 hours. Next, Castr will publish the app on Apple Store and Google Play (which would take another 3-5 working days).

Click HERE to see Castr OTT app demo on the Google Play store (for a demo of the OTT app on an iOS device, please contact us). You can download the demo app to test it out and see how the app would look like when released.

What we need to build an OTT app for you

Make sure you are prepared with:

  • Your app logo

  • Short and long descriptions for the app stores

  • Your website URL

  • The app’s screenshots

  • A privacy policy

What are the requirements for setting up Castr's OTT App?

Setting up Castr's OTT app is a comprehensive process that usually takes one to two weeks to complete.

You have two options for publishing: using your own developer account or Castr's account. Please note that additional charges for Google and Apple developer accounts are the client's responsibility.

Once you've chosen the publishing account, Castr will need two business days to work on your app. Please make sure your team provides all essential assets, such as logos, posters and descriptions. Following the preparation of these materials, the app will be submitted to Google and Apple stores for review. This review process typically takes between two to three days.

Once your app is approved by Apple and Google, it will be available for download on both platforms, marking the successful completion of the setup process.

An Overview of How to Use Your OTT App

We have added a toggle for releasing and showcasing new content on the OTT app. Please find it in your Live stream and Video Hosting Settings and toggle on/off the button:
