Make your TV apps even better

Experiments that fuel continuous improvement across the OTT experience

TV is changing fast. Lead the charge.

Insights to engage your customers

Customer actions are louder than words. Are you listening? Experiment with subscription flows, content discovery, ad placement and layouts to find out what they crave.

Optimize every channel

Every viewing medium is different. What works for mobile viewing won’t cut it for a home theater. That’s why Optimizely’s SDKs all work together so you can discover the best experience for each step of the customer journey.

Faster iteration. Less risk. Phased rollouts and instant updates

Phased rollouts and instant updates let you iterate quickly and launch fearlessly. Test new ideas and adjust on the fly with live variables and simple traffic allocation.

Target each experience

Deliver the right experience to the right audience with advanced targeting. And since Optimizely’s SDKs all work together, you can easily experiment and personalize across channels and devices with server-side experiments—and across your full tech stack.

Ship confidently. No surprises.

Flexible configuration options

Run experiments in any part of your app. Easily configure networking, logging, exception handling, integrations, and much more to meet your production needs.

Focus on performance

Experiment in real time with minimal performance impact. Our lightweight, open source SDKs make no network requests, and enable instant updates to your app—no App Store or Google Play Review required.

A trusted solution

Optimize your app on the world’s leading Experimentation Platform that is already delivering billions of experiences globally. Powered by Optimizely’s industry-leading Stats Engine.
