Velope engaged with Method and Showtime to deliver the Windows Vista premium launch partner application for the Windows Vista Media Center. The application offered Showtime’s media catalog in both free and pay per download versions. Users could navigate the entire Showtime lineup and view detailed program information which included cast and character bios, video trailers, and show descriptions. The paid portions included the ability to download series episodes for viewing on a TV or PC.
The challenges of this project were working with five separate tech contributors, beta versions of Vista, and evolving versions of an ecommerce provider service. Kudos to the Showtime team for patience and fortitude to see this project through to launch.
