You’ve probably heard of Spotify, but have you heard of Beat? Beat is a Norwegian commercial music streaming service with a large catalogue size and a competitive price tag. RiksTV offers the service on their hybrid set-top box with the app we designed and developed together with Beat.
It's OK if you don’t know what to listen to. That's why Beat focuses mainly on editorial playlists.
The enthusiasts at Beat create and update their lists on a daily basis, and lets you create your own as well - even transfer your lists from Spotify.
Use your lists already created on your phone or PC, or create new lists with a single press on the remote.
Beat offers a subscription for the whole family, making it hassle free to switch profiles in-app.
With large covers for every song in their catalogue, the app really shines in your living room during parties.
Most music players today are smaller than your wallet. It is practical on the go, but when you’re at home with your friends playing music on the stereo, no screen is better than the biggest one in your house.
You’re not watching TV when you’re listening to music. This is why we made the cover art as big as possible in the user interface. The album cover is an essential part of the musical package, and it would be a shame to keep it hidden away.
