45 Video Streaming Innovations

From Portable Streaming Sticks to Feminine Streaming Platforms

— March 14, 2016 — Tech
These video streaming innovations range from portable TV devices to empowering streaming platforms that are meant to encourage female content creators. In addition to niche streaming services like those designed to appeal to African American and Latino audiences, other content-specific platforms include those that exclusively stream Anime programming and others that cater to an audience of kids and tweens.

Next to niche streaming platforms, other standouts in this realm include in-car video services and live-streaming apps that connect social media users across North America and the rest of the globe. Standouts include Mirrativ's live-streaming app that combines the capabilities of popular Twitch and Periscope platforms.

Additionally, examples like streaming service festivals and live concert streaming apps appeal to in-the-know tech buffs and avid music lovers who can enjoy their favorite live show without having to physically attend it.
