A product is for life, not just for launch.

You’ve had an idea for an app, and scoured the app stores to see if anyone else has already done it.

This has changed drastically over the past few years. Now, most if not all family members possess a smartphone, tablet or a laptop, enabling them to stream shows and movies of their choice. Increasingly, machine learning algorithms are also playing a key role in our viewing habits, offering personalised suggestions on what to watch.
