Streaming service apps for the broadcasting sector allow users to watch live TV and on-demand video content on mobile devices. Streaming service apps may include cable channels, on-demand television shows, or online videos that can be played directly from the app's interface. A streaming service app should provide a search function that allows users to find specific programs quickly and easily.
Streaming service apps are similar to music streaming apps and video streaming apps, but often with a heavier emphasis on live TV, such as Sling TV and DirecTV Now.

A streaming service app can grow by acquiring new users in the broadcasting sector. In order to achieve viral growth, a streaming service app needs to add a lot of value to the lives of its users. Streaming apps need to be useful for their target audience in order to acquire new users. An example of this would be a streaming app that provides entertainment and news about an industry.
An app for streaming services faces risks related to copyright infringement, illegal content distribution, and the hosting of inappropriate content. Before creating your streaming service app you should conduct a thorough analysis of copyright laws specific to your region. Streaming apps often need to partner with major rights holders in order to ensure that their content is correctly licensed. If you are interested in streaming live sports content, you will want to go through an official governing body (such as the NFL or MLB) to ensure that you are adhering to all legal requirements for broadcasting sporting events.
