Founded in 2014, Nabo TV was built as a media hub to unify a user’s digital entertainment subscriptions into one centralized, single search library. Matt Hicks, CEO of Nabo TV, built the software with the express desire to provide an alternative to traditional media players by eliminating the need to search through individual channels and providers. Hicks and the Nabo TV team announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to bring their software to market.
“Our goal with Nabo TV was to create a user-friendly entertainment experience that lets users focus on what they want to watch, rather than where the media actually comes from,” says Hicks. “With Nabo TV, users can simply type a TV show or movie title into the dashboard’s search bar and begin watching, regardless of the connected source that is providing the content.”
Nabo TV users can browse their own digital collection of downloaded and recorded files alongside TV shows and movies currently available on every supported streaming service. The team will also be offering two different subscription models for Nabo TV, essential and premium.
Essential accountholders get the ability to connect all of their digital entertainment subscriptions into their Nabo TV account and can create unlimited, customizable profiles and parental controls. Premium users get all the essential features plus the ability to share recommendations, develop additional Nabo TV plugins, and tap into the cloud synchronization.
Regardless of account type, Nabo TV will be accessible on any device with an internet connection. In order to stream on a traditional television, Nabo TV users will have the option to either install the Nabo TV software on a set-top box of their own or to purchase a set-top box through Nabo with pre-installed software.
The Nabo TV Kickstarter campaign will run through February 19, 2015 as the team looks to secure $60,000. The first 100 backers to pledge $1,000 or more will receive a home theater device pre-configured with Alpha access to a Nabo TV premium account, and at the time of this writing the campaign had reached $746 towards their overall goal.
