Media & Entertainment

Does your app work in the homes, offices, buses and trains where users want to be entertained the most? Media isn’t consumed in a lab, so lab-based testing isn’t enough. Testing your media and entertainment app in the real world, with real people, on real devices is the only way to ensure your app will truly please your users every time.

  • Providing a high quality experience across devices
  • Supporting peak load and unexpected traffic
  • Ensuring content and videos load quickly and correctly
  • Presenting a consistent presence across web and mobile
  • Dealing with less-than-ideal connectivity
  • Making tight deadlines and quick turnarounds

Media App Testing eBook

Media and entertainment is a competitive industry. You have to be the best to stay on top. Is your app the best?

How uTest Helps

Device Coverage

Don’t lose readers, miss out on having a viral video hit or flub a cool promo because your app doesn’t work well on a range of devices. The uTest community has access to thousands of devices and can provide a range of testing services to make sure your app performs as intended for all your users.

Custom Teams

Need testers who are fans of your show or have a paid subscription to your service? With more than 100,000 testers, uTest can fill just about any special request. From functional testing, to usability testing, to localization testing, uTest can provide custom testing teams to fit any need in any location.

Wide Reach

Media is a global industry and your consumers are spread around the world. If you want to keep them delighted, your app needs to work everywhere your consumers are. uTest’s in-the-wild testing services are available in 200 countries and territories, giving you unrivaled testing reach.

Hybrid Load Testing

Synthetic load testing tells you how long your app keeps your users waiting and if elements load, but it can’t tell you if a video is jerky or if an image is distorted. uTest's hybrid load testing solution combines live testers with synthetic load, giving you insight into how your app looks and performs for a real consumer while under pressure.
