LiveXLive is the US-based service which offers concert livestreams along with music streaming (through its Slacker Radio subsidiary) and now podcasts (after buying a network called PodcastOne earlier this year). Now the company is making a push on the biggest screen in the home: the TV. It’s launching apps for Apple TV, Roku and Samsung TV, with Amazon Fire to follow.

The new apps will give people access to LiveXLive’s archive of shows, streams and podcasts on their smart TVs (or via smart-TV boxes / sticks), while the company will make money from this through audio ads and brand sponsorships.

The launch comes shortly after LiveXLive published its latest stats, saying that it delivered more than 69m live streams in its last financial year, with 1.2 million monthly active users and more than 850,000 paying subscribers. It has also recently launched a ‘pay-per-view’ service where artists can make money from selling digital tickets to their livestreams, as well as from tipping, digital meet’n’greets and merchandise sales.

Music Ally’s next Learn Live webinar will help you build the strategies for artists to thrive in new international markets!
