The world of online movie and TV streaming has quickly turned into a billion-dollar business, and two Sheridan residents are looking to tap into that market with their own innovative product.
Spencer Kuzara and Jacob Martin are the owners and creators of a new TV and movie streaming TV box called MovieNight, a product they say rivals the biggest and best online video on demand streaming services and cable TV services currently on the market.
Using just a small device — roughly the size of a hockey puck — that plugs into a television using an HDMI cord, a person can watch several channels of live TV and have endless on-demand movie possibilities available to him.
The product turns almost any TV into a smart TV.
It works much like the popular online streaming service Roku, but with the addition of live TV. All one needs is a wireless Internet connection and a television nearby and all of the customizable channels are available wherever they go.
“We do kind of the same thing as Roku, except we just do it bigger and better,” Kuzara said.
It’s been their side project for the past year and a half. Kuzara started MovieNight as a way to customize his own personal television viewing. But when Kuzara told Martin about his new program, Martin immediately saw the business potential.
