ABC News on Apple TV
For the debut of ABC News on Apple’s tvOS, a team at A Different Engine was given an opportunity to take full advantage of the new platform and its capabilities.
Making use of the Apple TV’s processing power, I helped create visual design and user experience that placed users directly into video playback at launch, and continued video playback throughout the experience.
While browsing the app, background video continues to play in an ambient, blurred state. At any time, users can dismiss the menu and return to the background video with a single press of a button. The app also showcases ABC News’s live stream content through a “control room” view that allows users to watch multiple live streams simultaneously on the same screen.
