Turn Audiences into Loyal Fanatics

Media Consumers Demand the Best From You

Deliver your global audiences consistent and relevant digital experiences

The media and entertainment landscape transforms seemingly every day. The percentage of consumers with at least one streaming video subscription has now eclipsed that of those with a traditional cable TV subscription. Audiences now expect intuitive viewing experiences that excel every time, no matter where they are or what device they’re using.

A Real-World Approach to Testing for Streaming Quality Excellence

Test with real users to find critical bugs before audiences do

Media companies must deliver exceptional and engaging experiences for their audiences. But you can’t validate this in a lab — it requires testing in the real world, with real users, on real devices.

Through our community-based approach, Applause provides custom and diverse teams of skilled, proven, independent testers that augment your internal QA efforts. Testers are sourced to match the demographics you care about, whether it be ensuring streaming quality in poor WiFi areas or validating new features with existing subscribers to your service. Testers interact with your offerings under real-world conditions across the devices and locations that are relevant to you, and identify high-impact bugs before they reach your audience.

Our approach combines exploratory testing, to discover issues stemming from unexpected usage patterns and real-world conditions, with structured testing, to ensure core features work as intended and regressions don’t slip through. The size and diversity of our community enables you to test in any country, in any language and on any region-specific device to ensure all features are localized.
