Nearly 50 Percent of TYT Network’s Mobile Access Derives from Android Users
The Young Turks (TYT) Network is launching its mobile app, TYT Plus, on Android. The company, which has over 4 million subscribers to its YouTube page, says that nearly half of its network’s mobile access comes from Android, making the expansion on to the device a natural next step for the network.
In addition to member content, which starts at $4.99 per month, the app will provide access to Video-On-Demand clips from new shows like, “#NoFilter” with Ana Kasparian and “The Damage Report” with John Iadarola. It will also allow fans to listen in to TYT’s new podcast shows including, “We The People with Nina Turner” and “Touré Show with Touré.”
“Our fans have been asking for TYT Plus on Android and we’re thrilled to deliver it to them,” said TYT Network CEO Cenk Uygur. “TYT Plus lets our fans have all of TYT in one place, where they spend most of their time online – on their mobile device. With TYT Plus, fans can have the Home of Progressives right in the palm of their hands.”
The newly launched TYT Plus app for Android is one of several recent tech developments for TYT Network. The iOS version of TYT Plus was released in April, followed by the launch of a 24-hour TV channel on YouTube TV’s cable-free live TV in May. Next, the company plans to unveil a brand new website, “TYT.COM,” later this year.
With the upcoming midterm elections, the launch of TYT Plus on iOS and Android will allow viewers to watch TYT special event and primary election night coverage directly from their phones. TYT Plus is currently available through Google Play and Apple App Stores. TYT programming can also be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeTV, Hulu, Amazon Video Direct, Comcast Watchable, PlutoTV, TuneIn, iTunes, and AOL.
