Local Now delivers real-time, localized information about current events, weather, lifestyle, sports, business, and traffic from content partners including the Associated Press, Reuters, Foursquare, Cheddar, SportRadar, TrafficLand, Flight Aware, and more. Local Now is owned and operated by The Weather Group.
With an aggressive cross-platform strategy in place, The Weather Group chose You.i Engine One to develop an improved, personalized experience for their digital apps starting with Local Now. Local Now has already deployed on iOS & Android, as well as the market’s three top selling streaming devices; Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV—with the same user experience running across all platforms.
You.i Engine One provides the most manageable way to scale across the different levels of Roku hardware. Developers can dynamically configure and control deltas to match high- and low-end device profiles.
Users can choose to watch national news or go local by searching their city for personalized, curated content.
Navigate the Local Now app by opening up menu options and search fields without interrupting streaming playback.
The mission of Local Now is to inspire and inform people through stories and data to build better communities. You.i TV’s innovative technology helps us deliver on that mission and give us the ability to create beautiful, immersive and hyper-personalized apps that put the user first.
