What is ZappoTV?
ZappoTV, with offices in Silicon Valley and Europe, was formed in 2009 to build tools and ways to help you find, enjoy, and share any media content.
To us, it should not matter whether you want to enjoy your videos, photos, and music at home or on the go. With our solution, you can even watch it on the bigger screens if there is a TV around.
Thanks to our proprietary technology and software, we may be helping you save money while giving you more! More content, more fun, and more control! Chances are that you already have compatible devices in your home that you can use, so no need to buy another box.
If you are an iPhone or iPod touch user, download your FREE ZappoTV application from the iTunes App Store and start enjoying your media on TV content the ZappoTV way.
