MUZU.TV, the Irish-owned interactive music video website has developed a new application for the upcoming Windows 8 operating system, giving users free access to over 110,000 music videos.
MUZU.TV has the largest legal dedicated music catalogue of official artists’ videos online and provides content from all four major record labels as well as thousands of independents and other content owners. Videos include official music videos for chart-topping, breaking and established artists, live concerts and festival footage, exclusive interviews, music news and behind-the-scenes footage.
The app was developed to showcase Muzu’s music catalogue to the extensive Windows 8 user base and to be one of the first available music video application.
A Muzu statement read: “We are committed to the Microsoft platform and have seen the tangible benefits through our existing Microsoft Xbox application which has been one of the most downloaded applications in Europe with over 1.4m downloads.
“The strategy is part of our goal to ensuring our users can access the best music service whenever and wherever they want.”
The MUZU.TV app also supports some of the unique Windows 8 features including ‘Snap View’ giving users the option to watch music video content while continuing to use other apps on Windows 8.
The application enables users to browse the latest new music videos, featured and most popular videos plus create and share video playlists and access exclusive content.
Ciaran Bollard, CEO and Co-founder of MUZU.TV commented “Developing one of the first music video applications on Windows 8 gives MUZU.TV a unique opportunity to take advantage of huge scale and reach. Our goal is to provide our users with access to the best music video service and experience wherever and whenever they choose.
“Muzu is a really exciting application for Windows 8,” said Caroline Phillips, Developer Platform Lead, Microsoft. “Muzu’s Windows 8 application demonstrates the potential and opportunities that Windows 8 presents for developers to create the next generation of applications across multiple devices.”
The application is available for free download in the Windows Store.
